    Camp Site

    Just a snapshot of what we get up to; during a particularly wet and muddy bush trip where the previous day we’d lost our number plate when attempting a particularly hairy river crossing, we eventually made it to our camp site. Early the next morning I was bird watching around the camp while my wife was still tucked up in bed. On returning to the table for my bird field guide I was amazed to see this lone male elephant at the edge of the bush, like a typical elephant he had silently materialized. Fortunately I had carried my wife’s “Cybershot” in my jacket pocket and snapped this picture before he “disappeared”.
    No technical comments necessary.

    Yes, it has all come together nicely. You even have a good subtly coloured sky.

    I love the way the shapes of the elephant, the tent and the cloud echo each other.
    I am also envious of your (to me ) exotic location.
