    We spent Christmas camping in the bush on safari in Kenya and I managed to take this photo of a Bull Elephant who was on guard keeping an eye on his family. In the photo, he raises his right foot and stamps it to the ground, warning me to keep my distance. Not long after this, I moved on.

    Apologies everyone for the wrong image size. I will have a rethink.

    Your link is too large of a file to show the image here, Phil. It's actually over 350 Kb and the forum software will only accept under 250 Kb.

    Try uploading again Phil as many members don't like to leave the forum to view images, just make sure your image is under 250kb and no bigger than 1020px on longest side.

    Gorgeous scene, that light is spectacular casting those orange tones on the elephant. Comp-wise I might be tempted to crop a bit off the left to get the elephant a little less central in the shot.

    If you decide you don't want to claim this one anymore, I will accept it.
    Strange, but elephants in the wild are my favorite.
    I like the zoo, but they are the only animal o despise being captive. Good reason or not.
    Great light. Great subject.
    Central or not, A+

    Thank you, I rather like your idea and I will give the photo a crop to the left and see how it comes out.

    Thank you David, the sun was going down behind me and the failing light was throwing up variations of shadows and colours. A positive review, thank you very much.

    You are welcome to use the photo for your own private collection. If you want the original file, the data is much larger than it is here, drop me a pm. Thank you for the positive comments. The Elephant in the photo lives in Mugie, a private conservancy of 47,000 acres which has 2 dams for the animals. The animals are protected by armed rangers.
