[ #TBT From May 23, 2016 ] Top Shot: Elephants in the Sun | Photograph by Marc Mol
“A herd of elephants cast incredible shadows across the dry Luangwa Riveer floodplain as they journey to the refreshing waters of this dwindling river,” writes #YourShotPhotographer Marc Mol. “The looming shadows of the herd were clearer than the animals themselves, who seamlessly blended into the textured patterns of the sand below them.” This photo was selected for the Daily Dozen on May 20, 2016.
