Story from behind the lens: After some brief afternoon rains the bush seemed to explode with vibrancy. The setting was perfect for some incredibly picturesque images. With the sky still saturated with incredible color from the late afternoon storm, when knew that we wanted this to be a feature in the images we created. As luck would have it we came across an incredible scene which presented us with some incredible photographic opportunities.... a beautiful family of elephants out enjoying the bounty of the storm...
