Elephants of Karnataka.
In March of 2012, as I wandered south of Bangalore city, I passed through the province of Karnataka and encountered these happy elephants getting a welcome shower. So much intelligence and good nature :) It reminds me to be thankful for the simpler comforts of life.
Among these is getting my steem account back!:) Apparently, I very stupidly pasted my key into a post at some point and, although I deleted it immediately it was still out there. Luckily @gtg (Gandalf) found it and protect me from my mistake!
I recommend everyone read his post here
I am very glad to be back with you all.
To my Steemit explorer friends,
I have probably taken over a million photographs of the natural world since childhood; this is a daily series of some of those I most treasure.
Where They are From
Many are from an organic orchard that I created on the hill above my home. When you are raising trees from saplings you are out in all weather at all hours and see remarkable things.
Some are from my art studio and my efforts there- especially those on behalf of the Tibetan people.
Still others are from my wanderings in the wilderness with compass and map my companions. Many are featured from posts I have created here on Steemit and I will link to those whenever possible if you wish to read more of the how, when and where.
Please upvote if you liked this post, and follow for more journeys through our mysterious and amazing world. And please comment as I greatly value these and will answer any questions you may have (and generally go to look at your posts of course since I consider a group of friends the most valuable possible outcome from efforts on Steemit.
