The LUMIX People's Choice Award

Charl Senekal, South Africa

The nightcap

For Charl, nothing beats the excitement and anticipation of sitting in wait at a waterhole during the dry season, knowing that anything can appear out of the darkness. The herd of zebra in South Africa’s Zimanga Game Reserve surpassed his wildest wishes, and the still conditions resulted in a near-perfect reflection.
