Five Foto Friday

It was really tough to pick only five photos for today's post.  I've been clicking through pictures most evenings this week - mostly getting ideas for the sky in the painting I'm working on - and stumbling across some beautiful photos.  Indeed, I've found a few new favourite photographers!  The picture with the elephant is the one that really caught me this week.  The elephant is a resident at a sanctuary in Thailand, and she looks on as her wrangler cuddles his young son.  The notes on the photo say that her calf had recently been killed by lightning.  I find the look in her eyes as she watches the young boy just heartbreaking.

that elephant expression is really touching. But the woman on the bicycle and the one in the water makes me want to go on a journey through those fields and down that creek! happy painting.
