Wonder what this would look like in pure black and white. I think it would be a total camouflage with the trees in the background. I can see how other animals would be confused looking at them. Great shot.

Behind The Lens

Location
This picture was taken on a safari tour in the beautiful Tanzanian bush. We were walking with our guide while zebra's and antilopes ran in the distance. It was totally safe as there was a guide with us, others were a bit further and there were no large predators in the area.
Time
As we were walking in the Tanzanian bush, the sun was slowly setting in front of us. Running zebra's kick a lot of dust in the air and when the light of the setting sun catches this dust, it creates a magical background for these beautiful creatures!

Equipment
This was shot handheld with a 75-300 telephotolens at only 75mm to capture the herd.
Inspiration
As we walked past I spotted the dust in the air catching the light from the setting sun. I liked the scene that was forming and waited until the zebra's took a (very short) break to catch their breath. I quickly took the shot and knew it would be a good one!
Editing
I did some basic exposure editing to make the black and white stripes of the zebra's pop. I also changed the colors to simplify the scene.
In my camera bag
For travelling, I use a Canon Eos 760d as it is lightweight and has more than enough MP for my pictures. I always carry one 17-40 wide-angle lens and one 70-210 telephotolens from Tamron. Both are relatively lightweight. My Sirui tripod is not so light, but that is needed for good stability.
Feedback
If you ever go on a safari, I recommend that you research the organisation well and look for an experienced guide. You don't want to be among wild animals with someone who doesn't know his job. You would think that such things should be obvious, but strangely it happens...
