Elephants Reflected III
Caption: Reflection of elephant with trunk extended as it sucks water from a small pool in an otherwise dry river, Mashatu Game Reserve, Botswana.
Camera: Canon EOS 50D; Lens: Canon EF 70-300mm f/4-5.6 IS USM telephoto zoom; Focal length: 220mm; Shutter speed: 1/1600; Aperture: f/5.6; ISO: 400
In this image, one in a series of elephant reflections where I’m striving to illustrate the same scene in different ways, I made the reflection the main subject, rather than the other way round. Now there’s only a hint of the physical elephant shown, where the trunk and its reflection meet on the water’s surface.
Here I focused the camera on the reflection, trying to get it as sharp as possible, as I want attention to be drawn to the elephant’s tusks and eye, then move updwards along the trunk.
