The Kgalagadi heat got to these pack off lions,finaly after a 4 hour wait.
8 lions made their turn at the waterhole and this was definately worth the wait.

Great scene, haven't seen such photo before. Well done.

Hello Morné,
Yes, it definitely was worth the wait. What a fabulous image! I suggest you crop most of the OOF FG off but very good as is indeed. Well done and best wishes.

Hi Morne,
Yes, I can just think how excited you must've been after the long wait. I agree with Neels to crop most of the FG it will enhance your photo even more. Very well done and tfs.

Hi Morne,
What a great moment, its three for the pice of one. I love that tongue on the right. This is shot so very well. Focus and light are perfect. Well done.


A very dramtic scene that you protray with the beady eyes of the lions. The eye contact is spectacular for me! Excellent sharpness, detail, DOF and colours. Neels is correct about the foreground (not a big issue for me). The POV is certainly unique for capturing lions as the subject.
Keep the great pic coming on TN!

Hi Morne,
I was waiting for one of these shots. Your photo portrays the genuine colour of the Kalahari lion well. Good DOF, POV and the detail of their facial expressions are excellent.
