I saw this beautiful photo first in a friend’s Facebook post. She got it from Green Renaissance, but the photo and words below are from talented photographer Joel Santos. His website is gorgeous and moving with pictures from his travels around the world. Santos resides in Lisbon, Portugal and is the author of several books on photography. It’s not only the elephant who’s making a splash.
“This is one of the most amazing and tender moments I’ve ever seen between a human and an elephant. The photo was taken during a morning bath, with lots of scrubbing with a coconut shell involved. Pure happiness. The elephant is an orphan juvenile and lives in Kerala, India.” – Joel Santos
