In From The Thirstlands


I just loved this scene courtesy of Hendri Venter, of this bull elephant on his way in from the thirstlands to quench his thirst during the midday heat. In the dry regions and seasons of Africa, where there is no food near to the source of water, elephants sometimes have to walk for hours every day to and from watering holes. You can feel his annoyance at coming across the observer on his way to one. I hope I managed to portray the atmosphere and that you enjoy the progression sequence I put together.
