Light is essential to good photography - it can make or break an image. Something I've learnt over the years is that while light is essential, it can still be a photographers foe as well as friend. Shoot at the wrong time of the day and the light will indeed work against you; mid-day light is incredibly harsh and this is mostly avoided. This image was shot one morning early last year - the light was clean and crisp, complementing the beautiful pattern of the zebra to great effect. Although I've many Zebra works, this image from 2015 still remains one of my favourites.
