Description: Beautiful male lion with his piercing look and sun set behind him makes King with a Crown.

Story from behind the lens: My second visit to mara happened in July 2022, we were on evening game drive and taking pictures of Verreaux eagle owl, our guide informed will search for another subject to take a silhouette. while he was driving, I was curious to get a male lion with beautiful sun set. After some time he found the male lion lying in a high ground. Sun set is around the corner and unfortunately sun is under the clouds. Philip our guide told I will position the vehicle to get eye level shot, we waited for few minutes and the magical moment happened.
