Drinking heard

By leons_photos  
This was taken at the Addo Elephant Park in the cape in very grey cloudy weather.
By trying to reduce camera shake I increased the ISO to 800 and under exposed the shot by 1/3 Did not like the colour option so tried it monochrome. Please comment.

Monochrome works well with the harmony of tones between the earth and the elephants

excellent...good timing to get the trunk lifting and the two babies are well for me in B&W.

we were not far away from Addo on our trip ....but just too far...will add it to the list
