A zebra column walking to a water hole through a salt pan in Etosha National Park. Sometimes you find 50 or more just walking one behind the other in a very calm way.

Hello Pierre
Wonderful scene and composition. Thanks for sharing this beauty.

Hi Pierre,
Good document & excellent "landscape"
TFS & best regards

Fantastic almost monochromatic image with, briliant clarity, lovely brightness and composition Pierre! I love that shot!

Dear Pierre

I like your picture very much. It's technically perfect and I especially appreciate the composition which is almost only made of horizontal lines. The colours are superb, too, and one could believe it is snow. I also like the serenity that emanates from the picture.

Kind regards


Hi Pierre,
Simple yet breathtaking photo, probably one of your best ones. The composition with the walking zebras (which, by the way, make fantastic contrast with the rather bright foreground) and horizontal lines is excellent, such as sharpness and colors. Probably I should have cropped a little more from the foreground, in order the zebra line to fit more to rule of thirds. Except for this, a professional shot. Bravo. I bookmark it as one of my faves.
Best regards, László

Another excellent photo,they should be Hartmann's mountain zebras (Equus zebra hartmannae), a subspecies -for some a distinct species- of mountain zebra (Equus Zebra).And the landscape deserves too.

VERY unique! Something out of National Geo! Great notion. Sometimes as some say...it's all location, location, location.

Hello Pierre,
What a fantastic atmosphere in this photo. Amazing beautiful clear colours. The BG and DOF are superb. Great choice of composition.

Bonjour Pierre,
C'est simple mais très bien composé sous une lumière bien maitrisée donnant quelque chose d'abstrait au paysage.
A bientôt sur TN pour de nouvelles aventures.

Fantastic! Your colours are just perfect!
I would crop the picture a little bit higher to get rid of the bush in the foreground?

Bonjour Pierre,
J'avais raté cette superbe image, remplie d'une atmosphère si spéciale..un environnement presque abstrait dans lequel font irruption ces zèbres à la tête baissée, accablés probablement par la chaleur. Bravo!

Hallo Pierre
Your Namibia images are really awesome and I regret that I did not see them sooner. This image in particular is very eye-cathing and I really fancy the different layers in the scenery, and how it is split in half with the row of zebras which is yet another layer. A wonderful image which I enjoyed stopping by. Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Pierre,

Impressive presentation of harsh life in SWA.

TFS. Sorry, I have used up my allotted daily ration of points.
