It started as a 366 – now a regular Photoblog- just for the love of taking photos and sharing them.
WOW! So impressive and touching… You are amazing. Thanks and Love, nia
Nia.. I appreciate your words.. I like that you find the photos both impressive and touching. Thank you
.. I have to say like NIa – WOoOOOOoow! Your photos are just amazing …
Aww thank you Viveka 🙂
fine textures and tones. ‘Touching’ is an interesting adjective to use for an elepnat’s skin!!! I’ve touched one!
Ahh…but it’s not an elephant Louis 😉
I love these!
Glad you do Tilly 🙂
Great Helen! Love the up close and of course the texture.
Thanks Muchly Elena 🙂
Oh I like these, Helen, and I see just what you mean about similarities with the dead tree. These are just the sorts of pictures that I would like to take more of – large animals filling the frame, lots of texture and abstraction – these shots are very good indeed – the one with the eye is certainly my favourite. Where did you take them? Bristol zoo has no large animals now, but there’s another one on the outskirts I ought to try. Good stuff, my friend! Adrian
At Longleat Adrian.. I have lots to come. It just felt so much better than a traditional Zoo
Oh yes, traditional zoos are a thing of the past for large animals I think. Well, looking forward to more of your Longleat shots! A

National Geo-worthy! Love (x10) the first shot. Pachyderms…it’s all about the skin!
Fascinating images! Have you taken photos of skin on other animals?
Thank you Rhys and welcome to my blog. If you look at the 2 posts after this Rhino one you will see the answer to your question 🙂
This series is remarkable, Helen. I love these tones and textures. Fantastic!
Thanks Karen.. very glad you like them..
I’m not sure I would ever have thought of doing this. But they make a fantastic series. Well shot, Helen
Thanks Andy.. I have had this idea in my mind for ages..
Rhinos are cool 🙂
I just love them Rachael… 😉
