These elephants look tranquil and calm despite the huge sandstorm growing behind them.
The imposing mammals appeared oblivious to the giant dust formation as photographer, Vishva Jayesh Patel, snapped away and caught the extraordinary moment on camera.
The 25-year-old was visiting Amboseli National Park in Kenya when he spotted the meteorological phenomenon.
He said: “This particular sand storm was very heavy because we had to stop our car for while due to heavy wind.
“I found a herd of elephants just enjoying themselves and playing around.
“They didn’t seem bothered by the storm at all.”
