Elephant On A Cliff Facing Change And Adversity

This elephant standing on the edge of a cliff is a metaphor for facing change and adversity. In this unique elephant picture the great animal looks out to the distance facing a future that is far from certain. This image can have many interpretations. This can be a picture of elephants facing extinction and loss of habitat, or it can be a picture of business facing similar challenges as change sweeps through industries.


Elephants As Symbols And Metaphor

Elephants make great symbols and metaphors. The elephant is attributed with intelligence, emotion and excellent memory, and as such, is an animal that we can readily identify with. Elephants are also regarded as noble and possessing great strength. In this photo the elephant is standing on a cliff edge, or the edge of an abyss. The cliff can represent a high point and therefore a good vantage point from which to view the surrounding area whether for threats or opportunities. The cliff and also represent an abyss, a place of danger and risk. The setting sun and storm clouds represent change and turbulent times. Add all of these symbols up and you have a versatile and compelling stock photo that can at the same time have a strong, clear message but remain ambiguous enough to be applied to many situations.


An Indian Elephant Looking To The Future

The future of elephants is just one concept that can be illustrated by this picture of and Indian elephant standing on a cliff and observing distant horizons. To create this image I photographed the elephant in Thailand, the cliff I assembled from pictures of the coast along San Francisco, and the sky, which I shot in Bonaire off the coast of Venezuela. This resulting picture can be one of conservation and ecology, business metaphors such as vision, strength, and vigilance, or heck, it can be a fine art elephant picture to hang on the wall! This can be a photo of looking to the future and of weathering a storm, whether the storm is a metaphor for business challenges or a more literal storm. This can even be a photo depicting solitude, contemplation, and standing out from the crowd.
