These eye-catching photographs capture the special relationship between a group of farmers and elephants — with a gorgeous sunset in the background. Vithun Khamsong, a civil engineer, shot the images earlier this year while visiting Surin, Thailand.

Khamsong said: “My favorite is the one where the sunset can be seen behind the man and the elephant. I was impressed and wanted to capture this lifestyle for other people see it.”
