Elephants sanctuary near Plettenberg Bay, South Africa. Orphan elephants - I've put them under wildlife as they roam free, although they are fed frequently by visitors.
hand held at knee height!
was that "trembling knee height"? great angle to shoot from
Great shot, the angle works well, the one on the right looks Indian? Nice one.
thanks everyone...they were all african
top shot well done
they look like there having a meeting*
Going there in December.
A great angle.
Fantatic shot. My wife and I were there last year march. It's a great place to visit.
Great angle on this shot.
Great shot from a great angle - would your holiday insurance cover you in this situation? Would the small print cover you for a footprint?
Ha Ha Bill....dangerous sport category?
thanks for the comments everyone..it was great to be able to get up close to such gentle creatures (although as soon as they ran out of food, it was a different story!!)
Lovely shot... scary angle! Very well caught!
nice angle, photography as an extreme sport
agree with the comments above. Nice one
Unusual angle! Pretty close though :^o !
different from the usual..hows your life insurance..great shot!
What a wonderful shot. Have an RC on me!
It's the low viewpoint that sets this shot apart - very well done.
I see you have been around... nice picture

Majestic animals, their social side is captured well here. Looks like you are joining them from this angle. Great! Also love the blue sky.
Excellent photograph. Very well captured. Elephants are such beautiful creatures, it must of been a dream come true to have seen them .
this is fab love animals detail great
I think that this terrific-I love the angle of view which really portrays their relative size. I did notice that the whole image is slanting and am wondering whether or not this is deliberate.
I think it would be interesting to see the
image straightened with the trees perpendicular.
A cracking shot none the less!!!
Jeff, an excellent shot, great work Tara x
Wow amazing - well done
Love elephantos, Great angle
Good low viewpoint, looks like a conference.
Magnificent animals, hard to believe anyone could commit such horrendous atrocities towards them, superb picture
Lovely Photo, beatufully captured, wonder what they're saying.
Love the title! hehe. The texture and colours are so dramatic. And I love the composition too. =]
Absolute magic, superb
Blimey would have loved to do that, Gorgeous Creatures
great setailed shot
Lovely shot, saw the signpost for this place as we did 'the garden Route' in April
Were you standing in the middle? Great picture!
you get to help feed them, but they are only docile while you are doing that. As soon as the food runs out you have to back away. Seriously heavy animals, even the babies
Wow. This is a truly incredible image. Absolutely fantastic. That must have been some experience!
An amazing photo. Like the sky and like the fine detail of the elephants trunks. Well done! barmymarny x

I see you've come up trunks again, nice shot.
Love the angle you used for this
Love the angle on this one,beautiful animal.
Lovely composition - don't know quite how you go about posing elephants - must have involved a large bag a of buns!

Wow, what a brilliant POV. Nicely captured.
Outstanding shot, amazing colours and great composition.
Brilliant! It brings out their social nature.
Not really sure if it is worth mentioning after reading all of the comments above but the I think the angle is brilliant, it exadurates and draws attention to the sheer size of these animals. Well done!

Super photo, but what a dangerous view point !
I'm a cynic - I think you bribed them!
You had a nice opportunity here to try out the low angle - they look even more impressive from this perspective!
I love the angle a lot! An amazing shot, indeed!
Oh my gosh I went there when I was in South Africa! Did you ride them? I didn't?
