#9 : ABANDONED OSTRICH EGG, AMBOSELI 2007

It was the most curious sight. There, at the edge of the vast dried Amboseli lake bed, lay a lone, abandoned ostrich egg. 

For me, the sight was quite compelling. I’ve seen the very occasional abandoned ostrich egg, but never in a place like this. I waited for the sun to lower in the sky,  and then took this shot.

As the final image of A Shadow Falls,  the second book in the trilogy, is this an image of hope or of despair? An image of the end, or the hope of a new beginning.....
