Blesbok pair (African Plains Game) on the horizon. Minimalist style.
I love early or late light and the silhouettes it creates, especially if trees or animals are in the frame...and at this time of the day there is very little time to locate and capture something unique so it is very challenging.

Are all the below average 5, 4, 3, 2 voters saying this is NOT my drug?

Perhaps I should have cropped it differently...more minimalist, more white space, less dark...thanks for the wake up call.

We could be twins!

This is sooo good.
Look at Mother Lion looking down on her playthings, with a pair of spectacles on, nogal.

really like this photo because of its simplicity and 2 tones that's it... personally would have cropped the lower half of the black out and really left a lot more white space but like i said very nice job.
