Yesterday I mentioned I would show you another Acacia Tree photo today. But, I realized that I had already posted it when I entered it in a contest (it’s another one of my top 5 for this trip). So, you can click here to see it and read the very interesting story on how that photo was taken.

Elephant Tusks - Amboseli, Kenya

Amboseli, Kenya is an area well know as a home for many elephants. We were there during a drought and the elephants and other animals were really suffering from the lack of water. It had a devastating effect on the vegetation that is the food for so many of them.

The photo was taken with a Canon EOS 40D, Sigma APO 150-500mm f/5-6.3 DG OS HSM Lens, 1/400 sec at f/6.3, ISO 3200 on SanDisk Extreme IV Digital Film.

  1. This is one of my all-time favorites, not just among the African photos. The sepia tone feels so right for the dry, dustiness of Amboseli. It’s also a sad reminder of how devastating it was to drive into Amboseli because I remember my father’s pictures of a verdant, almost tropical looking place, and this looked nothing like it anymore. I hope we all will start taking better care of our planet.
