In spite of its white sand beaches lined with palm trees, this archipelago remains a confidential destination, spared by the mass tourism.
This elephant is 61 years old, his name is Rahjan. This is the last elephant swimming in the sea water. It was trained by the British to push, while swimming, logs of wood, from island to island. He lies in this peculiar position for his mahout (master) climbs on his back. This photo needed 5 working days to meet the climatic conditions and the willingness of Rahjan. I did not want to cast a shadow on the sand and had to lie Rahjan perfectly aligned with the horizon.
