The evening that I returned from taking this photograph on the scorched earth of the dry Lake Amboseli, I was told by the local guide that the light conditions that afternoon were as dramatic as he could remember. The thunderstorms build in late October and this is also the time when the elephant herds can be at their biggest. They complement each other perfectly. In the craft of coupling powerful content with emotive aesthetics, this image is about as good as I can do. I remember having a few celebratory drinks that night.
