Bonjour Gérard,
La grande version de ton image nous transporte directement au Botswana et nous avons l'impression d'ętre au bord de la rivičre ŕ regarder les éléphants. Magnifique!!
Un grand merci

A very nice image Gerard. It looks as if you took this from a boat on the river.
Well done

Bonjour Gérard,

Very nice panoramic image. Really great view - but I don't like the out of focus branches on the right. Otherwise everything else is simply breathtaking.

In my WS I worked from the large version, rotated one degree left because the horizon seems a bit tilting, then cropped heavily to focus on the trio on left. I hope you like it even though it lost the panoramic format. Just a different idea about the otherwise very spectacular scene.

Merci du partager, my best regards, László

Hello Gerard,
such a stunning view. The lively herd is so well presented with exciting lake and earth view. Very lovely colour composition.
You have taken it from an excellent view.


Hi Gerard,
A clever and interesting panoramic presentation of this family of elephants relaxing and gulping down gallons of water.It seems so relaxed and peaceful but as we know things can change in seconds.Nice pic MF.
