It is difficult to describe in words the overwhelming experience…..
The sharp intake of breath
Clinching in the stomach…
the sharp rush of blood to the face &
arms as I got my camera ready…
words cannot do justice to
what we eperienced…
feeling his presence…..
the intensity of those
The beauty and the
colour & stripes…
The elegance of his
His movement &
I was walking on air ..
on our return to the camp…
