A very unique and special image. I especially like the golden tusks and dripping water, along with the sky. Nice eye contact, as well. The golden tusks remind me, sadly, of the value they carry!

As Joe says, it looks like their tusks have turned to gold, which looks great against the night sky! Nicely done!

A Healthy and Happy New Year to you, Des!

Wow. Safe to say I've never seen an image of elephants quite like this. Well done.

So unusual! I've never seen elephants at night like this. They look like they are having a great time! Happy New Year!

A very special image, very original in composition, light and shooting point.
