At the end of a wonderful day in Kruger National Park, South Africa, with the sun setting behind us, we were driving back towards the exit when we saw this elephant helping itself to the water in the tank. It was taking advantage of a block on the ground to get a better position.

I am a keen amateur photographer (progressing from a Brownie Box to digital) who loves to combine travel and photography. I have travelled extensively in Australia and New Zealand with other trips to parts of UK & Europe, USA, Africa, Scandinavia and Canada. My photography reflects my interest in culture, scenery and wildlife relating to these travels.
