Biblical scene at A1 Savannahs Farm

This is a photograph that I took at the A1 Savannahs farm near Ponca City in Oklahoma, USA.

I was taken in the early hours of the morning on 25th May 2010. A distant storm had awoken me at about 4 am.

The morning before the weather had been glorious with a warm light that grazed the gentle landscape and bathed it in a glowing light.

This time the storm had created billowing clouds of grey and pink luminescence.

The cloud formation changed all the time and the colour changed too. The whole scene rapidly changed and faded. It was all over in 20 minutes.

The calm of the goats, sheep and bison grazing contrasted beautifully with the angry sky to create a biblical scene.

All it needed was Moses to walk out from behind the tree in the distance!

Daria an F2 Savannah kitten from A1 Savannahs

This is a fine F2 Savannah kitten that I photographed at the home of A1 Savannahs yesterday, 18th May 2010.

He already has a new human companion and the photo was taken to provide the new owner with a photo before the cat was shipped out.

Daria was very inquisitive and found this cat toy tunnel. It was dark outside the house and tungsten light inside. So I used an on-camera flash which is not usually a good source of light but the walls of the tunnel, I think, helped a lot to create an interesting photo.

It always difficult to create something a bit different. Adult F2 Savannah cats are smart and active. They are very loyal to their human companion. They like the human companion to be around so it is only fair that the owner is around.

On that basis new F2 Savannah cat owners should not, ideally, be working full-time or away from home. Perhaps the best human companion would be a person who is retired and able to devote a large part of the day their gorgeous Savannah cat.
