The Golden Lioness Of Tsavo East
I feel that the phrase 'painting with light' cannot be better expressed in words. The photograph of this lioness in tsavo east national park, just seems to naturally explain the term itself.
For some us who have acquired wildlife photography skills, this photo was taken at the golden hour which is the moment just before sunset or sunrise. Since the sun is low on the horizon at those times of day, there is a beautiful softness to the light which gives a magical touch to ones photographs.
During one of our safaris in tsavo east, we found this lioness resting in a patch of grass just after she completed a successful hunt. Positioning ourselves in the right direction, we waited for the sun to begin setting and nature just did the rest. The grass slowly started lighting up golden, presenting a beautiful photo moment befitting this queen of the jungle.
