2019-04-22: Monochrome Monday

Here we are at Monday again.  I felt like editing some elephant images recently, so that is what I have decided to share today.  Elephants, with their amazingly textured skin, look fantastic in monochrome images (at least I think so!)

I hope you enjoy my selections.  Have a great week!

There is actually a pair of elephants here, climbing out of the dry riverbed in front of Ngala Tented Camp, but one is mostly obscured by the bushes.  This image looked pretty flat and lifeless from the harsh midday sun, until I did the black and white conversion.  I couldn’t quite go ask them to repeat the trek at a later time when the lighting was more favourable!
