Lovely shot! It's not until you see scenes like this for real (we did in South Africa & Zambia) that you realise how amazingly beautiful such animals are in their natural settings.
Aksel from Norway: Thanks smile You are right, this was so amazing, glad we still have the opportunity to see this....

Pyjama donkeys we call them. Those behind are blue wildebeest or gnu.

The crop and B&W works excellent here.

So where are you going the next few weeks.
Aksel from Norway: Thanks - I'm going to Møre where my wifes from, I have had a coupple og shots on the blog from that area. I'm also going four days to Poland with my ma and pa - never been to Poland so I'm really looking forward to that smile

Beautifully done Aksel. How does this one print in this format? I do like your choice to go mono on this one. Kind regards, Neil.
Aksel from Norway: Thanks...I don't even have a printer so I really don't know....Thanks for the mono comment smile
For some reason this makes me think of watching an old documentary in black and white. Kind of nostalgic. I really like it.
Aksel from Norway: Thanks, I choose BW and added some grain to get that feeling...I guess I have succeded in one way grin Inspired by reading Karen Blixen - out of Africa
