Zebras at Sunrise

Zebras at Sunrise

Back in July at the Masai-Mara, we went our early one morning for a drive in the park. The sun was just beginning to rise, painting the sky in impossible colors, when we encountered some Zebras. There is something incredibly elegant about Zebras, that make them stand out, even though they're not rare. It's not unusual to encounter thousands of them per day. But still, with that unique black-and-white pattern that each one has, they're special.

What do I like about this photo? The black-and-white Zebras stand out against the colorful background, consisting of the green vegetation, the incredible sky, and the trees in the back. I used an open aperture (f/6.3, the most open my lens allows at this focal length) to have the Zebras in focus and the rest blurred out.

What would I want to change? Eye contact with at least one Zebra would have upgraded this photo considerably, I believe. Apart from that, not much. I like this one!
