Elephant Hug


Elephant Hug

from 175.00

"Elephant Hug” was taken while sitting at a watering hole in Hwange National Park.  We watched herds of elephants play, splash, fight, and drink.  Elephants are very social creatures, full of personality making them incredibly fun to watch.  I love the composition in this photograph, the curve of the elephant’s trunks with the symmetry of the tusks.  I find the smiles on the elephants to be contagious, looking at this photograph just puts me in a good mood.

The “Safari in Black and White” series is fresh, clean, and modern.  I opted to print this series in black and white to highlight the unique, distinctive patterns, markings, and textures found on the animals in the bush.  All animals in this collection were photographed while on safari in the Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe, and in the Okavango Delta, Botswana.
