Elephant walking across pan

This photograph of an elephant walking across a partly dried out pan was taken in Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe. It was late afternoon so the slanting rays of the setting sun have bathed the background in warm light. The elephant is following a path where others have previously crossed and broken through the crusty surface of the pan.

I used a Canon EOS 400D with 70-300mm IS zoom lens at a focal length of 200mm. Aperture was F5.6, shutter speed 1/80th and ISO 200.
