Roy Mangersnes - Impala

The Impala jumping across the African savanna is one of the most stunning sights. It is amazing to watch how easy they cover enormous distances in a single leap. Trying to photograph it is quit hard, and I was pretty lucky to observe a couple of younger males showing of. I wanted to make something different from the scene and decided to slow things down a bit. Choosing a low iso I was able to shoot at 1/8 sec, making it impossible to get a sharp image, but that was not was I was aiming for. This image is more about shapes and colors, greens and reds coming together in one single leap.
