I traveled to Madagascar in May of 2022 with Holbrook, and our group was led by the great photographer and filmmaker Todd Gustafson. Early in our trip, we traveled to Morondava on the West Coast of Madagascar and then traveled by four-wheel-drive vehicle to the famous Avenue of the Baobabs. These trees are more than 800 years old with trunks about 150 feet in circumference. The sky was clear the night we were there and the Milky Way was just overhead. For this particular shot of a baobab, I was lucky enough to catch the red light from somebody’s flash, hence the red trunk.

We found lemurs everywhere we traveled in Madagascar. There are some 112 different species of lemur. This is a baby ring-tailed lemur we found in a park near the capital Antananarivo.
