Elephants on Sandbank

Elephants on Sandbank_2013_10_01_0597_768x474

The Zambezi River presents many moods which are enhanced by the presence of life on its sandy banks. A break in the cloud cover on this unseasonably overcast day in the Zambesi Valley spreads warmth on the Zambian escarpment. The elephants swam across to the sand banks to feed on the grass.

Digital Wildlife Photographic Tips
Always remember to compose a few shots of your subject in the upright, portrait format, thus experimenting with the best composure. If you come to selling your work, it is perhaps best to shoot in both horizontal and vertical formats, but remember to include reasonable space around the subject to enable cropping by designers.
