These two zebras walk through the dusty savannah from the river back to the bush. With the last sunset light, the arid area glows with vibrant yellow and orange colors. The flowing dust in the air combined with the yellow, orange light of the sunset gives a unique warmth and mystery to the scene. Two zebras walk in the dusty savannah back into the bush. Most of the zebras and wildebeests had already left to go back to the forest. It felt like the animals came out of nowhere and go back into nowhere.
Dust Cloud Over A Riverbed
A large herd of zebras and wildebeests comes to drink at a nearly dry river bed as it had not rained for months. Therefore, the riverbed ground is parched. An enormous herd of zebras and wildebeests came in and ran, and this whirled up even more dust. Indeed a massive dust cloud is floating over the river bed. Fighting animals created even more dirt and dust that blew into the air. The zebras, wildebeests, and some giraffes were finding their spots on the edge of the water to drink. This exquisite spectacle lasted for nearly one hour. The sunset started, and the light turned slowly into a beautiful orange glow. The floating dust cloud spread this fantastic orange light evenly over the river bed. I spotted the two zebras walking into the orange dust cloud. All animals present at this spectacle gave me some beautiful compositions for photographs.
