photoblog image Battle scarred
Another Elephant image from my safari in the Masi Mara last month. Judging from the scars on his ears this bull elephant has had a few run-ins over the years.

Elephants make fantastic monochrome subjects with their textured skin. As before, this image was converted to mono in Lightroom using the channel controls.

JamesP: I agree - the Masai Mara is without a doubt the most amazing place I have ever been. It is full of the most spectacular wildlife and is so stunningly beautiful it's almost too easy to take good photos smile

Nothing quite prepares you for the sight of elephants in the wild either, however many times you may have seen them in zoos or on TV.

What a wonderful image , i love the textures of the skin. They are supposed to be very sensitive.
