Farm animals, Douz, Tunisia, 2008

A setting sun provides a bright yellow background for this braying donkey. A camel stands just behind the bush at left. The backlighting abstracts the donkey, yet leaves enough of it visible to convey its response to my presence. The backlighting also illuminates the form of the donkey, creating a thin line of gold under its chest and jaw. I never mind shooting directly into a setting sun it is a magical time of day, and the photographic results are unpredictable and always atmospheric.
