Elephants in the Mist

Elephants in the Mist

African Elephant    Loxodonta africana

The dust caused by the elephants’ rapid approach to the water’s edge, combined with the fading light of the encroaching dusk on an autumn afternoon, lends a misty and mystical atmosphere to this image. The elephants had come for a sundowner late on a May afternoon. This waterside view of them enjoying a thirst-quenching drink is one of my favourites!

This image was captured on the Chobe River, near Kasane, northern Botswana, Southern Africa.
