Zebra Sunset - Painting with Light A herd of &quot;Plains&quot; ( Burchell&#039;s Zebra) pose against a sunset sky with dust in the air.  As mentioned a number of times, I deliberately look for dust when it comes to silhouette sunset shots.  It just makes the light seem more &quot;layered&quot; and provides a contrast.<br />

Zebra Sunset - Painting with Light

A herd of "Plains" ( Burchell's Zebra) pose against a sunset sky with dust in the air. As mentioned a number of times, I deliberately look for dust when it comes to silhouette sunset shots. It just makes the light seem more "layered" and provides a contrast.

Photographed in the wilds of Namibia, southwestern Africa.

The plains zebra , also known as the common zebra, is the most common and geographically widespread species of zebra. Its range is fragmented, but spans much of southern and eastern Africa south of the Sahara. Six subspecies have been recognised including the extinct quagga which was thought to be a separate species. However, more recent research supports variations in zebra populations being clines rather than subspecies.
