2017 Africa Geographic Photographer of the Year Awards

My image of Chapman's Baobab is one of

Africa Geographic's

Photographer of the Year 2017 Winners!

 

"Chapman’s baobab is named after James Chapman (1831-1872) who was an explorer of Southern Africa and came across this vast baobab on July 10, 1852 while traversing the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans. This is an iconic tree that David Livingstone and Frederick Selous camped under during their explorations, and one of the three largest baobabs in Africa. I got an opportunity to capture this tree under moonless skies as a long exposure with stars trailing through it. Sadly, on the 7th of January, 2016, it fell to the ground. This tree holds a special place in Africa’s amazing history."
