Nature’s great Masterpiece

Nature’s great masterpiece, an elephant;

The only harmless great thing

~John Donne



This photo was originally taken in Daylight during a boat trip in Queen Elisabeth National park in Uganda. It is edited to a sunset silhouette, taking away all realistic elements. The main subject is the elephant, drinking water from the lake and hiding under the tree to protect itself from the sun. IT is brought to a silhouette, to emphasize the beauty of this scene. The sunset edited to create the magical sphere. Quote edited to do honour to the animal.


The quote is written by John Donne, an English poet living from 1572 untill 1631. He is a representative of the metaphysical poets of that time. More information about him, as well as his work and other quotes can be found on the website of Goodreads.
