Up Close and Personal
Photo and caption by Brendan van Son
I had been in Africa for 16 months by the time I took this photo. I had been shooting lots of stuff on my 70-200mm, but decided that I wanted to try some wide stuff. The driver got close to this freshly bathed elephant and I photographed it at 18mm. I was so close I could have reached out and touched it.
