Highlighted Zebra

I found myself shooting into the setting sun each evening while in the Maasi Mara. This wasn’t by design or even was I forced to. Rather, I really found the effects pleasing as I got some flare and deep colors by these angles.

This image was captured shortly before the sun set while I was watching a small group of zebras. I had been zoomed in more to isolate the zebra and reduce the sun flare, but then I zoomed out and captured this image.

It’s hard to explain why I like some images more than others, even ones taken within minutes of each other. But, here is one such instance. The strong sun rays coming in from the top of the frame and highlighting the zebra just help make the image.
