Thailand - Chiang Mai - Elephant bathing

Best viewed small....

 

as this shot was taken during torential rain and I had to under-expose to keep a fast enough shutter speed. This blue tint and a touch of difusion can hide a multitude of sins.

 

The elephants in Northern Thailand found themselves unemployed overnight when logging was outlawed. Consequently they now spend their time entertaining tourists, which I imagine is more fun than lugging huge logs about all day.
