Family of elephants walking out of the riverbed at sunset in Botswana. The colourful clouds and the tree on the right set a harmonising scene for this composition.


Something drew me to the riverbed of the Chobe River. I had not been very successful in getting the perfect shot as it had rained for weeks in the area before we arrived, and much of the land was impassable or flooded. The fresh clean smell of air filled my lungs, but there was a different feeling this morning.

I had waited here for hours when suddenly a family of elephants approached the scene. I could feel my pulse beating fast when the matriarch positioned herself between her family and us. There was no way for us to move.

I waited impatiently while the herd drank at the river’s edge. It seemed to take forever – then finally, the matriarch rejoined the group. When they turned around to walk away, I saw a picture happening. I had Mother Nature on my side. The colour in the clouds and the tree on the right just set the scene. It made my day.
