[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Try to imagine a national park the size of Israel with bushwillow interrupted by open savanna , rushing rivers and rocky bluff. Now fill it with lions, leopards, elephants, buffalos, rhinos, giraffes, cheetahs, hippos and you start feeling what is KRUGER NATIONAL PARK all about.

Shot taken in a safari at Sabi Sand a private Reserve which is situated in an area that has the greatest diversity of wildlife in Africa.

Sabi Sand Game Reserve is a collection of private game reserves that share unfenced borders with each other and with the Kruger National Park. This allows the free movement of wildlife over more than 2 million hectares of pristine bush.

Hi Nicolas . Firstly a warm welcome to TN. You have posted a fine picture to start with. I just love male lions and where they should be in the wild. you have good detail and natural colours. well done TFS.

Welcome to TN - and a beautiful first photo you posted. It shows the 'real' life of these wonderful animals: the water, mud, the dominates and the ones that are submissive. The colors are natural, the lighting is good, and the exposure, I think, is nailed. :-)

Ciao Nicolas,
Benvenuto su TN. Splendida cattura di questi "tranquilli" leoni, che si possono procurare il cibo senza molta fatica. Molto bella la composizione con la prospettiva della strada ravvivata dalle pozzanghere, ottima definizione, belli e naturali i colori.

Welcome to TN! A good sighting that you managed here. I like the composition as there are 3 male lions in the frame. The detail and clarity of the image are all good.
