Mahout Bathing and Elephant, India

Mahout Bathing and Elephant, India
Photograph by Mohit Midha
Watching a mahout lovingly bathe his elephant, I tried capturing the moment from the riverside but wasn’t satisfied with what I saw through the viewfinder.  There was something lacking that made the image not do justice to the scene.  I then climbed a tree with a branch extending out over the water and got my shot, which may have been my last as I almost fell off after taking it.  I’m sure the beautiful elephant would not have been very happy about me falling out of a tree straight onto her stomach!
