Waiting for water
Towards the end of the dry season in Chobe National Park, elephants gather around the permanent park waterholes, sometimes walking up to 80 km to get there. Dust fills the air and big bulls fight for the best spots close to the water. One evening, Hannes went near the elephants with a wideangle lens and pointed his flash at the sky to capture all the particles in the air. This created a halo effect filled with bokeh (those circles in the halo, which are actually dust particles very close to the lens). Talk about getting creative!
HOW? Nikon D800E, 14 mm lens, shutter speed 1 second, aperture f2.8, ISO 800, with a flash.
