The image displayed here was scanned from the front page of Beeld Newspaper, dated 27 January 2010. I realize that the scan-quality is poor, and that the newspaper fold-creases are clearly visible in the lower portion of the picture, but I simply had to share this amazing picture. Besides minor colour-enhancements using Photoshop, nothing has been changed in the photograph.
The photograph was taken in the Tsakane safari camp in the Balule reserve of Limpopo. The photographer is Tinkie Wolfaardt from Polokwane (Pietersburg). She took the photograph when a troop of 14 elephants arrived to munch on the green trees in the camp. The game ranger you see in the photograph fired a warning shot with his rifle, and the elephants calmly turned around and strolled off in another direction. This photograph was one of several entered in a photographic completion run by the Beeld Newspaper.
