The photographer: Bob Bradford of Folsom Behind the lens: This photo was taken in September at the base of the Rift Valley at the Lake Manyara National Park in Kenya. We were out early in the morning and had seen several groups of giraffes, but this picture stood out because of the light ground fog giving this lone animal an ethereal look. I took the photo at 2.8f with my Leica V-LUX, a Christmas gift from my wife, Nancy.
