Scarred Hunter

Lion in the sunrise at Kruger National Park.


For the last few months I've been slowly re-editing photos from an epic trip to South Africa, this one was one I had never edited before.


The Lion (and his brother) had been sleeping in the long grass and we stumbled across it at sunrise.


The fresh scar is on his nose is probably from hunting during the night.


Taken with my trusty old Nikon D70s, that camera was a joy to use, but was really limited to ISO400 and lower! How did we manage back then?
