giraffe and sunrise

l was always after one photo of a giraffe in the sun while its rising. For this photo l knew l need to catch a giraffe in the horizon alone without any bush, tree, animal etc. before sunrise with sufficient distance. l watched one group of giraffes for 3 days and in the end l found this giraffe in the nice, plain horizon alone just before sunrise, and l had this shot with the sunrise.
