Very nice the colors in the background work so well with the elephant. Did you use a fill flash for shadows?

Behind The Lens

Location
This was taken on safari in South Africa. We were staying at the River Bend Lodges, which is part of the Addo Game Reserve. This was a later afternoon drive and we were on our way back to the Lodge for dinner, when these two elephants wandered by.
Time
This was late afternoon on our way back to the River Bend Lodges for dinner
Lighting
A great light just as the sun was setting casting shadows on the elephants
Equipment
This was taken with a compact camera, didn't want to take a big camera to South Africa
Inspiration
The great light and shadows cast on the elephants
Editing
The sky was enhanced and the shadows
In my camera bag
I have just bought a Panasonic FZ1000 as I am suffering from arthritis in my fingers and wrists so I now don't have to change lenses
Feedback
This was one of those lucky shots. I was in the right place at the right time
