Description: Mating Lion couple between sunrise

Story from behind the lens: We had our morning drive and our immediate feeling was that it was going to be a amazing day. We decided to look for the pride of lions directly with our guide Ken, which turned out to be a really good decision. After just a short time we were successful and found this mating couple. We were the only car at the sighting and this moment was unique and unforgettable for all of us. All the parameters came together - an incredible sunrise, the hot air balloons in the background and the mating couple. A unique experience in the vastness of the Maasai Mara.
