Longing?...[EXPLORED 12/26]

    Newer Older

    This is from my recent trip to Thailand where I was commissioned to photograph Asian Elephants, centering around those at Boon Lott's Elephant Sanctuary in Baan Tuek. This beautiful elephant looks on as her mahout cuddles baby Noah. She had recently lost her calf who was struck by lightning.

      A beautiful image, shot with so much sensitivity. Lovely work.

      Great sense of scale, limited color palette, texture in the elephant and thatching, and shift toward white around the people and elephant!

      Beautiful subject and composition. Pity about the over-exposure being pulled back so much as to make the bleached highlights grey. ;-)

      An absolutely beautiful shot. Makes me love the personality of elephants even more.

      40% of site's visitors are in India. You speculate how the site is popular. But major number of images are copyright, so cannot download. This annoyed much.
