Africa is such a country where I have noticed Sunset in different mood.Sometime a question arise in me automatically that is it true!Or it is a game of interplay of light and shade by God.Don't know,but here it is one of them beautiful sunset which I noticed at Kruger National Park.

After lunch drove towards Crocodile Bridge from Lower Sabie and at the time of returning we(Me and my wife)decided to follow S28(Dirt Road).Mostprobably it was Nhlanganzwani,which is almost 17 Km from Gasanftombi,we saw a few Zebra were standing and its almost quite dark every where,except beautiful lighting sky.I took 4/5 shots and started our journey again towards Lower Sabie.Symphony of insects with different animals sound made the orchestra awesome.If I close my eyes,I can see the BREATHTAKING SUNSET with the symphony of Kruger.

Hi Srikumar,another fantastic shot from your trip,this is very very original,an artistic way to take this fire in the sky with the zebras and the tree silhouettes,magnificent work! Have a nice weekend and thanks,Luciano

Hello Srikumar

I have never had the chance to be in Africa but the Sunset warm light
of the background of your photo it reminds me Africa !
and in the darkness you focused superbly the Zebras
with excellent sharpness, and details, and a lovely light
coming on them and giving an atmosphere effet, TFS


Hi Srikumar, Magnificent sunset scenery with two lovely Zebra to decorate the sunset beauty. The silhouettes of the trees has framed the composition so well. Great light management even the zebra are in the shade. Super clarity in the dark. Best regards

Colourful sunset and Black and white Zebra.
Fantastic shot.
