Elephant crossing waterlilies

Photo and caption by Basil Stathoulis

I spent two mornings on a boat in the early summer channels of the north eastern Okavango Delta. The birdlife is incredible but I wanted to capture an elephant in the landscape (waterscape) with a wide angle lens. The first day he was tangle up in the bullrushes like a young Moses but the second day He moved off and parallel to me, allowing me to capture the image on an overcast day. I have increased the contrast on the overcast day to present the viewer with the atmosphere I experienced.

Location: Concession 25, Okavango Delta, Botswana
