During our stay in Nambia, we spent three days in Etosha. This park is quite different from others I saw in Africa. First, it's the largest one with almost 23 000 km2. Second, most of its part is made of a large dry salted lake called "Pan". And most surprising, we don't meet much people when driving around. We could easily spend one hour before meeting a new car.
We were going back to the lodge after we spent some time looking at a group of 5-6 lions close to a swamp. Thunder was starting on the horizon. On the road back, we stopped because a young zebra was blocking our way. I drove slowly toward him then he jumped to join a group of older zebras.
One of them stood like this staring at me while the others ones were passing behind him slowly. I found the composition with those stripe really attracting.

Super, surtout avec toutes ces raies qui se confondent et qui donnent un effet de moires. J'aurais cependant enlevé un peu de ciel.

I have recognized at once characteristic view and landscape for Etosha National Park... Fantastic dynamic shot of zebras. I like contrasting colours and good DOF.
Well done. Best regards,

I like this zebra shot as the one stares directly at you and the others go on with what they are doing. Of couse the little baby is so cute and an extra bonus in the shot. I like the stark feeling of the shot too with the desolate landscape and the 3 basic colours of white, black and blue.
