This is what Amboseli has to offer and when it does, I think it is unrivalled as a spectacle in the natural world. A battalion of; elephants in one seamless, cohesive unit charging through the desert. To see this scene played out is a real privilege and one that; should always get the adrenaline flowing.; I find myself reaching for military metaphors, but this spectacle is accompanied by an eerie silence and the serenity of the desert is; not compromised. I sense that The Desert Rats, the byname for the 7th Armoured Division, would have made more noise in their; celebrated campaign against Rommel in North Africa in 1941.; The photographer's job, when encountering such a desert army of elephants, demands quick thinking on positioning and a really; strong relationship and understanding with his driver. We have been in this situation a few times and one potential variable is now a; constant - we use a 200mm lens. Anything shorter is too loose and going for more compression risks cutting off some of the; army.; This is not an easy image to capture and I did have a cigar that night. Maybe like General Harding or indeed General Rommel. 180.3 × 259.1, Contact for price; 132.1 × 185.4, Contact for price
