Sunset with Elephants

March 15th, 2010

The second camp in Etosha, Halali, is located next to the Moringa waterhole. I spent my second night in Etosha staying at this camp and watching the waterhole for most of the day. When the Sun began to sink behind the horizon I watched this matriarchal group of elephants drinking at the waterhole. While observing the animals we also had an amazing sunset with an orange so saturated - I never saw anything like it before.

Just after the elephants had gone we saw a small group of black rhino drinking and also had some hyena and a leopard later that night. This is a magical place!

Canon EOS 40D, Tamron 17-50mm f/2.8, ISO 400, 1/80 sec., 40mm, f/5.6. Post-processing in Adobe Lightroom 2, finishing touches in Adobe Photoshop CS4.

This is a magnificent capture. What an experience it must have been to witness firsthand.

Magical or not, the smell must have been tremendous. Ahh, to live on planet Earth!

While I don't personally want elephants on my desktop, it is a fresh subject and well taken.

Simply beautiful. You have certainly made the most of your time in Africa and thank you for sharing, in the next best way, that moment at the watering hole.

Hey guys, thank you all for your comments. I know its kind of different and I was really sceptical about submitting a photo of animals here to interfacelift. However, I love this shot so much and some of you apparently do as well, so I decided to give it a try. Thanks again for all your comments - I'm glad you like it!

Really like this. It doesn't fit my desktop tastes in the slightest, and yet it's such a nice shot I can only encourage you to share more.
Thank you.
