Lion with Zebra Kill Kruger Park

lion with zebra kill kruger national park south africa

On my last day in Kruger National Park last December, my partner and I headed down a road we had never travelled before. Several cars passed us telling us there was some lions with a Zebra Kill just a few kilometres down the road but also warned us about a very big hole in the road which would prevent us getting to it. Nonetheless we decided to check it out as we have come to …

fine art wildlife photo of male lion in the Maasai Mara in Monochrome / Black and White

I came across this image this morning in my catalogues from my trips to the Maasai Mara in Kenya. This image of this male lion stood in a half processed state and has been this way for some months now so I decided to finish processing it to put out on my blog and in my image galleries and print ordering system. I am quite pleased with how the processing turned out and feel it …

Photo “Ghost in the Darkness” – Lion Portrait

This is an image I took some time ago in the Sabi Sands. An afternoon drive saw us run into some Male Lion’s from the Mapogo pride close to dusk, they were on the move so as we slowly progressed back to camp we followed them for a while. Light began to drop fast and a tracker on one of the other vehicles pulled out his spotlight and I got this one shot of this …

Brothers in Arms – Lion Cub Photos

I captured this image one morning back in 2009 shortly before sunrise in the Sabi Sands reserve in South Africa. We had arrived at a nearby watering hole to find the Mapogo pride of lions with a bunch of young cubs who were all in a very playful mood. All you could hear non stop from our vehicles was the sound of shutters firing as our camera’s consumed hundreds of lion cub photos. I caught …

Lion Cubs in the Maasai Mara – Kenya

On an afternoon drive in the Maasai Mara we came across a pride of lion lazing around (big surprise) and sleeping in the long grass near a rivine. We sat and watched them for some time, hoping that as the sun started setting we might get some activity out of them. Lo and behold the cubs awoke in a very playful mood and proceeded to entertain us with some very cute activity and poses. Here’s …

King of Africa – New Print Release

Another image release in my new collection of prints from the Maasai Mara. I caught this male Lion staring off into his domain on an early morning drive. This male was clearly the dominant male as shortly after this image was taken, he got up, walked across very calmly to another male in the same pride, and gave him a solid swift smack in the face. The other male was trying to get fresh with …

My Kingdom – Male Lion on the Plains of the Maasai Mara in Kenya

We followed this male lion for a short while one morning in the Maasai Mara. At one point he stopped looked straight at me and I grabbed this image of him with his entire kingdom stretching out behind him. There’s often too much focus these days on extreme close ups of animals filling the entire frame, even I’m guilty of that, but I like to often try and capture the animal in his environment. Lions …
