Black Rhino, in Black and White
A Rare and Endangered Black Rhino bull shows off at a watering hole, his reflection crisp and beautiful.
I am not sure about the use of Monochrome when it comes to photography, but I thought I would try it as I have photographed this specific bull so many times before. It certainly does give "age" and "classic" attributes to the photograph, focusing mostly on shadows and contrasts. So in this case, with his reflection so great, I thought I would give black and white a shot ... besides the fact that this is a Black Rhino.
Please note I have geo-tagged this bull at Windhoek, the capital city of Namibia ... but he was not photographed there. His location will be a secret.
