Etosha Sunset

This is a traditionnal Gnu (aka wildebeest) taken in Etosha NP (Namibia), a few kilometers on the road to Halali Camp. People are not allowed to stay outside after sunset (camp gates are closed for security) but watching the sun set in beautiful pink and orange hues made me slow down. As the sun was touching the horizon I stopped the car when I found a pleasing composition with the animal rendered as a silhouette and a little bush in front of him. This was shot from y car windows with a D810 + 500mm at f/4, resting on a beanbag. I returned promptly to camp as gates were closing.
