Jie says:

This image was taken in Lake Magadi in Africa. Lake Magadi is one of the inland lakes at the southernmost point of Kenya, belonging to the Rift Valley area of Kenya, formed by fault subsidence. The area varies depending on rainy or dry seasons. During the dry season, it is 80% covered by sodium carbonate and is well known for its wading birds, including flamingos. The bottom of the lake deposits about 4 meters of natural alkali. In the dry season, there will be salt deposits around the lake, forming colorful patterns, depending on wind and wave.

Large numbers of flamingos are often seen by the lake. This unique geographical environment makes them add infinite charm to nature.

I had to wait for the right light and angle and find the pattern in the lake with the helicopter to shoot this image. I imagined a photo with somehow a surreal pattern that at a closer look becomes a wildlife photo. Flamingos are best photographed inflight and the lake pattern gives the photograph the right compositon of colors and the birds provide a symmetry of geographical pattern.

I used to think that photography is a record, a capture of a moment. And it still is, but also much more. I found inspiration and satisfaction not only in the visual enjoyment but also in the expression of the harmonious coexistence of the world and the balance of the nature. The threats that wildlife are exposed to, for example the scale of habitat and climate change, are best illustrated by bringing the animals closer to the audience. I have also learned so much more about the behavior of the animals, which is necessary to shoot a good photo.

Lastly, I finally became patient. Because sometimes it takes hours to get a good angle, light or pose and I am now willing to wait for that moment.
