Encounter

Scrambling up steep and muddy terrain and dodging through the thick vegetation seemed neverending. Wearied, on the verge of giving up, you suddenly see a pair of large brown eyes. They gaze at you for a moment. That intense moment of meeting this gentle and highly endangered primate will stay in your memory for the rest of your life. The shot taken while trekking the Kahungye mountain gorilla family in Bwindi Impenetrable Forest, Uganda
