After waiting seven hours beside a waterhole in Etosha National Park, Namibia, photographer Johan Georget got the shot of a lifetime. The sky was overcast and Georget didn’t have any hopes of even seeing a sunset, but then the sun pierced through the clouds at just the right moment. Around 7pm, as the sun was disappearing below the horizon, creating a stunning sunset, this rhino decided to come out for a drink:
Georget captured the photo with a Pentax K-5 IIs and a 16-50mm f/2.8 lens. The settings were 18mm, f/4.0, ISO 400, and 1/125 of a second. Georget says he bracketed heavily when shooting because the contrast was so high, but the final image is a single exposure.
