Virunga National Park, Nord-Kivu Province, Democratic Republic of Congo
I had the privilege to be one of the first non-rangers of Virunga National Park to go on a mountain gorilla trek in over a year this past April in Virunga National Park. The park is closed due to safety concerns. This teenage mountain gorilla gave me a split second opportunity to photograph him as he gazed right through my camera lens, filling the frame. A second after this photo, he was on his way again.
Slight exposure, contrast alterations.
