Scale – it’s everywhere in this photo, seen and unseen.

Taken during a 2004 visit, Tarangire National Park in Tanzania is small in scale compared to the open plains of Serengeti, or the Selous.  Yet in dry season, the low level of water draws in large beasts from far around.  Out from the shelter and shade of 20,000 square kilometres of park to the narrow banks of the Tarangire River.

This family of elephants range in scale from the youngest calf to full grown adults but with sustenance in mind.  And those fully grown elephants are dwarfed in scale by baobab trees, and within those trees you may find Tarangire’s famous tree-climbing lions.
