These zebra (and a few wildebeest) have come to a dried up watering hole in Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania. While there were still other areas with water, many had dried due to a serious drought in 2009 when I shot this photo.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, Sigma APO 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Lens, 1/250 sec at f/7.1, ISO 200 on SanDisk Extreme IV Digital Film and post-procesed with Nik Software Viveza 2.

    1. It’s a single image but cropped substantially. The original had a lot of foreground land and a lot of sky so that they were distracting from the subject. After cropping, it took what I thought was a photo not worth working on to one that I liked a lot. I used Nik Viveza 2 and Color Effects Pro 3 in post-processing it.

  1. this picture is great. they almost look ‘moired’ into each other. how fun.
    Yesterday’s picture was really beautiful. Like it as much as the one you had in the show.

    1. Thanks Jenny. I really like today’s photo too. There is something so busy about it that it becomes interesting. And I think it tells the story as titled.
