Love the treatment of the foreground and the background, just made the Zebras standout from the photo.
'right moment'? the river is rife with crocodiles just waiting for an errant migrant to swim for it!
beautiful picture & I envy you being able to see this for yourself.
The layering in this photo impresses me from the clear, stark zebras in the foreground, up through the dust, the silhouetted grey trees and billowing clouds. You got it all and B & W was the indicated choice. Congrats Giulio. Add me to your growing list of fans.
Just asking, are zebras and wildebeests mutual animals? I noticed them not being hostile to each other.
Can the Zebras see through all that fog? Why are the Zebras just staying there, I thought that they would run away if you got that close?
This photo is VERY nice.I love how the photo is just black and white. Also like how the fog is covering the zebras.
There are SO many things that I love about this photo, like how the zebras blended in to their background and that that the photographer was able to take the picture up close, But what really tied it together was how the zebras faded in to the fog.
This is an amazing picture that you took. I like the way the fog covers the zebras in the back, it makes the look mysterious. How did you take this photo with out alrting the zebras to stampede?
This photo is a great photo because of the way you got the zebra in one place. Also the way you got the colors in the back around it looks like a black and white movie.
Wow, this photo is amazing! The fog in the background really sets the mood. It also brings out the zebras' stripes, the white looks a lot brighter. I've always wanted to go and see wild animals just roaming around, and not in a zoo.
The trees seem flat... They look AMAZING! The zebras bunched together, facing different directions look AMAZING!
Is it fog or dust blowing in the air?
@K. Vitug zebras follow the wildebeests during the migration. However, I have seen them just in the Serengeti and not in the second part in the Masai Mara

@Tabitha Sage They just follow the herd when one decides to cross. They are pausing on the bank of the river until they reach a critical mass for crossing
