Through the path of giants

A charming image of a warthog family walking through a group of elephants has been awarded the POTW accolade. 

The image 'Through the path of giants' taken by ePz member akprice, stood out to the team and here's why we thought it deserved to win: 

This image is almost like a scene from a film, with the mother warthog bravely leading her little family through the legs and trunks of the elephants. They create a forest-like setting for the image, which has been well composed to give the warthogs pride of place in the frame whilst also keeping the textural interest of the skin of the elephants. 

It's a very monotonal image - there are only really the greys of the animals and the beige of the dry grass - and the dust rising from the ground adds to the atmosphere. The positions of the elephants have worked out well for the photographer - the two with their backs to the camera almost frame the image and the mother and baby facing the camera in the background appear to be looking on curiously. 

It's a lovely capture that the photographer should be proud of.
