Fun in the Rain by Mario Gerth
This variant is currently sold out
The savannah has seen no rain for months and all creatures are looking for precious but scarce water. One day while photographing thick clouds emerged and the long longed rain finally came. We took refuge in straw huts to protect our equipment, surprised to see the children of the Surma in the extreme western Sudan: All offspring from the village came along, sang and jumped through puddles on the muddy ground. We had no choice other than to dance and laugh with them under the cast of life, hand in hand.The youth joy even retain adults and shows us again and again how much joy the rain can bring, the simple things in life we often take for granted too easily.
