How beautiful...I'm a "contrasts" person so I love strong shapes against pretty colors. This is very nice!

Wow, that's almost dizzying to look at. At first I thought the photo was turned sideways until I saw the clouds and got myself oriented. Amazing shot and incredible gates! Thank you for this!

Looks great but it probably wasn´t that great for the elephants. Dramatic stuff.
