The dried up and crusty pans surrounding the swamps of Amboseli provide fascinating photographic subjects.

This trail of elephant footprints must have been made during the the final stages of the pan drying up, before it crumbled and cracked on the surface as a result of the sun.

I tried various compositions but felt that the footprints were the focus of this story and decided to include more of the foreground rather than the backdrop of Mount Kilimanjaro in the distance.
