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 or Burchell's zebra, is the most common and geographically widespread species of zebra. It ranges from the south of Ethiopia through East Africa to as far south as Botswana and eastern South Africa. The plains zebra remains common in game reserves, but is threatened by human activities such as hunting for its meat and hide, as well as competition with livestock and encroachment by farming on much of its habitat.
