For me, there is nothing better than to see a big elephant with water. The combination of these two elements is always great. Especially if you’ve got a nice sized male bull. This one is about 37 years old with some good ivory. It is now a mature male that has about 10 to 15 years of life still. A dynamic animal, huge and strong, standing in the water, with reflections and birds flying around it is just one of the best wildlife experiences you can have. As a family, we have explored Lake Kariba in Zimbabwe extensively and this piece is inspired by one of the many shots that were taken there.
