12th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Natural World
Zebras and Topi

I really hope everyone has the chance to go on safari. On a personal level, this experience was more than just a trip; it was a spiritual experience, and it made me aware of the beauty that this planet holds for each and every one of us. I took this shot just as the sun was setting on our left. The cloudy sky and the piercing light, coupled with the mountains on the background made a wonderful contrast of color; and both the zebras and the topi just added to the beauty of the moment.
