I didn’t think too much of this photo when I was first reviewing my catalogue from this trip, but my wife quite liked it and we ended up having a print of it displayed in our downstairs bathroom. Truth be told, every time I see it I become a little more proud of it. The framing/lighting are just great. Little elements like the spacing and placement of the two larger trees, the mummy elephant’s trunk reaching out to the calf, the dust being kicked up and the way the light is falling across the elephants are the things l like most, as well as the memories it gives me of an amazing trip to Tanzania!
Shot in Tarangire National Park, Tanzania in July 2009.
