Nikapotha, a look into the Udawalawe basin.

I took this photo on the road to Beragala coming up from Nikapotha. It was around 4pm.

A domesticated elephant being transported, Thalduwa, Sri Lanka.

A few decades ago, domesticated elephants in Sri Lanka had to walk long distances for work or to take part in Peraharas. Nowadays they are transported on flat-bed trucks. The elephant keeper is in danger of getting a shower of urine anytime during transport.  Photo taken with a Sony Cybershot 8.1MP by Gnanamoli Veerasingam.
