19th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
The Long Road Home

I captured this image at sunset on a November afternoon as a group of wildebeest marched across the dusty playa near Lake Amboseli, Kenya in hopes of finding fresh rain and grass. It was the end of the dry season and because of the nearby lake and marsh, these wildebeest don't typically participate in the great migration.
