This scene was an easy choice as my favourite shot of the year! It lacks in photographic technique and neither is it a good composition, but rather it speaks in an existential sense – a wild untrammelled spirit ; flying along, unfettered, free. It’s also unusual in that the Cape Mountain zebra are a species associated with mountains, and to have recorded this scene on the beach is (i think) a personal shot of a lifetime. I posted it after the devastating storm in June and wrote about it here.

I can see why it is a favourite. 🙂
I really enjoy this photo. If you don’t mind, I would like to write a poem about this photo, not sure what style. If that’s ok with you. Either way, hope you have an excellent New Year.
Thank you, I hope it inspires lightness of being.
Thank you. I’ll let you know when it’s done. Have a great New Year.
Forgot to add that the credit for the photo will be posted before the poem.
Thanks, I look forward to reading where the image takes your words.
Thank you, I appreciate the kindness. I’ll message you when it’s finished.
I loved this photograph when you first posted it and it hasn’t lost its appeal.
Fabulous shot. Every time I see your Cape photos I miss it even more.
A very special image
