Good morning...
Thank you for your votes and comments and especially to Kathryn (Kathrynlouise) for her UA, much appreciated.
Some bum shots for you today....A herd of elephant were walking down the track in front of us so I took the opportunity of some bum their swishy tails. V2 is a mono of the lead image.
Have a great dayGrinGrin

I think this thread has bottomed out now...sorry.

I like these, a bit different but interesting and elephants from any angle will always get my vote.

I have taken some bum shots in my time but none so good as this because I don't have access to such gorgeous models. Colour for me.

Seen a few sights like this on my walkabouts at Gunwharf, though they didn't have tails. Think I prefer yours Colleen, much more interesting.

Well, we're scraping the bottom of the barrel here - what a load of bum images!! Grin Seriously, a great and different set of elephant images here, Colleen, great detail in the folds of skin. Think the colour versions all work best for me, with V1 just being the winner Smile

You've come up trumps here Colleen, I particularly like the mono versions as they really show the textures in the elephants skin
