This is a nice capture of a magnificent creature at his most peaceful.The reflection of the rippling water is interesting.

her iki taraftada yansıma güzel yakalanmış ellerinize sağlık
bu arada aslan ın yüzünede sudaki dalgalanmaların yansıması gelmiş :)

Awesome :)

beautiful reflection!! but for some reason I do not like the colors really, maybe the blue and the browns are to strong and it makes to much contrast, I don't really know why, it makes the photo look a bit messy, but you did a good job capturing that lion!! TFS


Wonderful capture with a great reflection in the water. I think you have oversaturated it a bit though, the blue looks too strong. Well done, wonderful photo with great light.


Hi Suha,

This is a Fantastic shot!
Very nice colors and composition.

Sky reflex on water is so beautiful.
