Of course it was typo/mistake.

Well, I should have clarified: I shot that elephant - a pretty big fella - sometime in the late afternoon in Sigur (Sigur Plateau - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia). That night, around 9 pm, I was driving on a muddy and rocky trail around 1 km of the place where the picture was taken. I turned a corner and saw him 5 feet from my vehicle. It was too late to stop or turn since I was committed in the turn. So I pressed the accelerator and scooted hoping that he wouldn't be chasing me (I couldn't outrun him on that trail). Was quite a heart-in-the-mouth experience.

Not nit-picking at all. At one stage you say it was late afternoon and in the next line you mention 9 pm. Or is it that maybe I'm missing something??

Secondly, if you were so hell bent on escaping from there, then how did you manage to photograph the beast?

Ok, maybe I should pay more attention to my English to prevent confusion, but I thought I made it apparent that I came across this elephant twice on the same day :
1. In the afternoon when I took his pictures
2. And then again about 4 hours later in the night when I ran (well, drove) for my life

A close up of his trunk and tusks:

Shot using a Nikon V1 Mirrorless Camera. Pretty impressed with this little camera system!

You're correct about the cause being the CPL. When used with wider lenses, you may end up with these kind situations especially when shooting more of the sky.

Sandegov,
Awesome shot. I have never been able to get to this vista point. I should get there next time around.

Had the first snow in DC on friday night. I went out on saturday morning for some photographs. Here are the minimal themed shots..

Both of these dogs you guys discussing about were strays, we adopted them. The local animal care trust picks up strays dogs just as MP mentioned.

Did some street photography this past Sunday at Seattle, thoroughly enjoyed using the V1. Anyone looking for a mirror-less camera, I strongly recommend this incredible little camera.
