NEW: Prints of the above photo now available!

This is a composition based on several photos I took in different countries. :)

I wanted this to look very neat and clean with a slight surreal atmosphere...

Some other photos from the wild:

I am The Wind Says The Wind

A poem by Peter S. Quinn

'I am the wind' says the wind,
I will improvise pictures in the sand;
What I've explored or chagrined,
You shall come to understand.

'I am the rain' says the rain,
I will sooth your mortal flesh;
With a drink from my reign,
There are no other holier fresh.

'I am the fire' says the fire,
I will open up darkness to you;
Give you longings and more desire,
In each thing you make and do.

'I am a child' says man's child,
Each word I make shall stand;
I'll make my rules out of the wild,
In each my way I command.

'I am the earth' says the earth,
You are nothing without me;
I gave you and your forefathers birth,
I set each thought and thing free.

This is a stunning photograph. Words cannot do it adequate justice. The juxtaposition of real and reflection blend into a poetic whole. The smokey black border fades inward, leading the eye to the perfectly contrasted zebra in motion. His form is echoed in the water below, yet both real and image are equally dreamlike. The shadow of the earthboud zebra is the only thing that ties it to the physical world. Otherwise, it appears to be galloping across the grey expanses of infinity, pursued by its ghost self in the water below. Absolute perfection. This is a brilliant work. Bravo!

This is just a stunning Zebra photographie; If it is all natural with the shadow and reflection then this is a MASTER;
