"I was following a group of Klipspringer at Kokerboomkloof in the Richtersveld National Park just after sunrise," says Your Shot photographer Basson van Zyl. "The low angle of the morning sun and the gigantic rocks created the perfect beams of light which created this scene." This photo was submitted to Your Shot, our photo community on Instagram.
