Pinnawala is a remarkable place to visit. In this orphanage about 50 elephants are wandering around. Some out of the wild wounded by lacal farmers in protection of their crops and others born here.
Here you see a photo of the most impressive moment of the day, the moment that all the elephants are takeing a bath in the river. A new born baby shelters between the big ones that give em optimal protection.

A great capture of this youngster taking shelter among the older members of the group. The tight crop works well and the image has very good colours and clarity. A charming composition.

Very cute and quite touching. It's certainly an impressive sight and you have captured the moment well in a nicely cropped picture with very good light and sharpness.
