[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This was taken at the Shamwari game reserve in the Eastern Cape. We were lucky enough to see several lions, male and female groups. This was one of a pair of males, the other one - this subject's son - is out of shot in this framing. This is as I shot it, not cropped or post processed. This was taken from about 40 feet.

An excellent harmony by simple colours and lights another amazing wild life poster well done JULIAN NASH

Hi Julian

Please understand that this is my opinion only and many may disagree with me.
I realise that taking this photo would have been very exciting but if you are going to taking a photo of a lion, it should be mostly visible. Personally I think this lion is too hidden.

Hello Julian

I actually like the image for the stealth of the subject. There is a lot of possibilities for this image. Great starter image for art. Nice placement of the Lion in your POV.


parfait camouflage
j'adore cette texture

PS: j'ai fait un ws,si tu permettes je peux publier


I like that the lion is hidden because it shows that he is in its natural element and as it's different from all those pictures of lions are all the same.
This is unsusual with light and tones that I like.
The graphics reminded me a pencil drawing.
Superb !

Hi Julian,
A brilliant capture showing the interaction between these fantastic cats and nature, emphasizing their invisibility, for the lack of words. One can pass them without even noticing a thing. Perfect, well captured.

bonjour Julian
Excellent shot between photo and drawing of Nature
