Grey Visage…





                      “ There is mystery behind that masked grey visage,


                               and ancient life force, delicate and mighty,

                                                         awesome and enchanted,

                                commanding the silence ordinarily reserved for mountain peaks,

                                              great fires, and the sea.”

                                                                                                      ` ~ `      Peter Matthiessen,

  2. Majestic words, so fitting. You always capture the elephant’s mystique so well — I hope to have an opportunity to see one in the wild or native-area nature preserve some day!

    A grand spectacle of a lonely elephant walking majestically on the pebbled banks of a river. Awesome! You can add a Website widgets and Pin It buttons of Pinterest to your site.

  6. What I love most about your wonderful shots is the love and respect for the animal you photograph every time and they obviously sense that! Chapeau, Sriram! 🙂

  7. Wonderful picture, Sriram. ‘Delicate and mighty’ go beautifully together to describe the elephant with its young.
