Spent a few days at a couple of game reserves in SA last week. These are the first couple I have had chance to process.

1. Elephant at Madikwe

Really like the golden colour of the water in #2. Maybe a slight crop from the right to make the hippo less central and I think a lower angle would have made this better. Nice shot though better than I got of hippos in Kenya.

Thanks for the comments. I was actually thinking about a crop. How does this look?
