Photographer's Note

It rained all night, stopping shortly we got up and leaving us with a damp morning, and a crater filled with mist. We drove along the edge of the rim for some distance, until we reached the start of the road that cut down the steep slope, zigzagging its way to the crater floor.
We descended into the atmospheric fog past mysterious vegetation, feeling like we were entering a lost world. The sun grew weaker and sounds were deadened as we sunk further into the mist. Giant, enigmatic cacti loomed from alongside the truck, seeming to appear out of nowhere.
On reaching the floor of the crater we drove a short way into the trees when, through the haze to the right of the road, a vague shadow gathered form and coalesced into an elephant. It was a magical moment as that elephant and the two that had materialised behind it slowly picked their way through the undergrowth, lifting logs with their trunks.
