Under The Elephant - Shortlisted for Rspca YPA 2009

By JoshCunliffe
I came across this elephant grazing approximately 20 metres away from the roadside atop the Ngorongoro Crater in north Tanzania. A little patience saw the huge animal stroll casually up to our truck, have a little look around, then walk inches past the front of us. This was a terrific experience and I captured a photo I'm very pleased with. It's a pity I can't upload a bigger picture; the detail is something to behold!

Comments and Votes always appreciated. Thanks for looking.

I'm so pleased - this photo just got shortlisted out of thousands for the RSPCA Young Photographer Awards 12-18 Catagory. Smile

P.S I've found this picture looks absolutely revolting on a lot of screens... Oops.

I loved this shot the first time I saw it - was at work at the time hence no coment. The composition is superb, a really 'different well thought out image. Congratulations on the HC - very well deserved.
