Black, White and Gold

Zebras are actually quite difficult to photograph. Until you actually see them in the wild, and attempt to get a good image, you wouldn’t know this. But, they are cautious animals, so when a person or vehicle approaches, they either start to run away or turn and face the opposite direction. All that makes capturing an image of a zebra from the front inherently difficult, especially from shorter distances.

As the sun set one evening, we observed a number of zebra eating and enjoying the last light of the day. The sun, which was very close to dipping below the horizon, cast a beautiful golden glow on the grass, which really helped to accurate the strips of this zebra. I just love the colors and hues created by the low angle of the sun in this image.
