18th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World

How would you feel if the zebras came to visit you in the middle of the night to drink while you're in the night hide? The feeling is awesome since you cannot be closer to nature than this. SOUTH AFRICA. This was shot close to midnight from a night hide in water level with led lighting, still in high ISO and slow shutter speed do to difficult light conditions. A herd of zebras came to the water hole to drink around midnight. Since you can hardly move yourself in the hide, you have to be creative and try photograph the very second/s that your object/s give/s you the desired composition. This moment demonstrates the composition i have desired for this shot. i hope that my viewers appreciate the aesthetics and neatness of this image, its elegance and fine compositions. EXIF: Canon 1dx-II, Sigma Art 24-105 f/4, f/4, 1/160, ISO 5000, 38 mm, B&W PP
