The Kodanad elephant training center is a training home for rescued elephants. Prior to the government of India ban on capturing elephants, it was a training center for wild elephants.

  1. Superb shot Joshi, the angle and the perspective you created here is amazing. Enjoyed just looking at all the detail for awhile…gaining perspective, and enjoy it just more & more.

  2. I’ve read and heard quite a bit about this. It seems to me that while there has been some abuses and other improprieties, no zoo, safari or reserve in the entire world has taken better care of captive elephants than India.

  3. To my eye, one of your best shots, Joshi. Really nice. I love the color tones and lighting, and the composition as well. Thanks for another beautiful photo. (I hope the elephants are returned to the wild…)

  4. It’s a pleasure to see ur photos. And in this one I love this story…the colors…the contrasts in those colors. But what is the most endearing aspect is that ur picture has caught the essence too. The bond that they share…the elephant…the mahaouts….and the routine. Oh I can go on and on. Love this picture for all the elements it has…

  5. There is something about a great creature like this succumbing to man’s gentle touch . A very tender beautiful shot Joshi .
