Title: Making Faces

Subject: Baringo Giraffe

Location: Hogle Zoo in Salt Lake City, Utah, USA

Camera: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XTi; EF 100-400mm ƒ/4.5-5.6L IS USM lens at 400mm; 1/1000 sec at ƒ/5.6; ISO 400.

Story: “This little baby giraffe was certainly not camera shy! He spent several hilarious minutes playing and making faces at me — mostly making me wish I had a video camera on me instead of just a still camera. The cloud to the silver lining is that he didn’t survive the year. Of course, that’s one nice thing about photography — now he gets to be eternally young and cute.”

Title: Sunrise at Mesa Arch

Subject: Mesa Arch

Location: Canyonlands National Park, Moab, Utah, USA

Story: “This was taken on my first trip to Canyonlands National Park. I was amazed by the silent, serene beauty of the place. I especially found it interesting to observe that the sun strikes the arch at a different point, depending on the time of the year; this photo was taken in mid-April. If I were to revisit in a couple of months, it would be an almost different image.”

Camera: Canon EOS 7D; 18-135mm; Oben tripod.
