#9 : ABANDONED OSTRICH EGG, AMBOSELI 2007
It was the most curious sight. There, at the edge of the vast dried Amboseli lake bed, lay a lone, abandoned ostrich egg.
For me, the sight was quite compelling. I’ve seen the very occasional abandoned ostrich egg, but never in a place like this. I waited for the sun to lower in the sky, and then took this shot.
As the final image of A Shadow Falls, the second book in the trilogy, is this an image of hope or of despair? An image of the end, or the hope of a new beginning.....
