The story behind the image
Animals are always good canidates for a fun shot – if you’re fast enough.
For this shot, I was fast enough. We had entered the Etosha National Park in Namibia earlier that day, coming from the East through the Von Lindequist Gate entrance. First we explored the area North of the Namutoni Camp but then started our slow drive towards the Halali Camp on the C38. And suddenly there were Zebras, Zebras, and more Zebras. I took so many photos of Zebras that I had difficulties to select the best photos.
When the crowd was gone, one single Zebra followed, and I reached for the camera and I was fast enough to shoot another photo: a Zebra crossing in the Etosha National Park! How cool is that?
I think it’s a great fun shot (and not a photomontage, by the way!)
