A ride on a steam locomotive is an experience on its own, but being able to capture images of such a powerful mechanical monster, is something else.Details
Burden of a King
This is one of my favourite images. I managed to capture this amazing animal while working in the Pilanesburg National Park. We went for an afternoon drive with a few staff members and a member of the Parks Board, looking for the Western Pride. This particular pride of lions live in the far western area of the Pilanesburg where there are no public roads, and therefore they are not often seen. We managed to track them down and drive along side them for hours. Eventually they stopped and decided to rest. This is when I took this shot.
In this picture, I am trying to convey the fact that even one of the most powerful beings, has a sensitive and vulnerable side. The facial expression of this Lion tells a story that most people would not believe existed.
