[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
We saw this elephant drinking and what struck me was the size of it. When I started composing the shot, I noticed how the tree in the foreground made the elephant look small. Hence the title "Giants".

I took this picture in the afternoon south of Satara in the Kruger National Park, South Africa.

Some giants are "gianter" than others I suppose ;)
Sometimes I like to put a "mask" on a photo and focus on just a part... Look at what we see when that is done here... See WS.
