This was shot near a waterhole in South Africa. The sun was about to set, and I saw this almost perfect silhouette appearing in front of my eyes. I didn't hesitate and slowly moved towards the water's edge to get a low perspective and see as much of the elephant's shape sticking into the coloring sky.
