Zebras...Elephants and Colours

As a result of a conversation over a bottle of Wine this challenge was born.....try and show the colours. That was the challenge to our Photographer...but all photographs must be taken on the same day!!

This is the result...all taken within about 5 hours....and all at River Bend Lodge in the Nyathi Concession of the Addo Elephant National Park.

Elephants in Dominance Skirmish...Fine Art Photography

Our resident Photographer captured these Images and had this to say:

"If one observes the parade of Elephants there are nearly always these minor skirmishes for dominance taking place away from the cows and calves. Sometimes the two bulls get fairly aggressive and the battle can get fairly intense.

This Series is called Dominance."
