Khaudum Lion running at sunset 106_0609_RJ

    Newer Older

    This African Lion ran across the road ahead of us in Khaudum, a little known park on the eastern border of Namibia with Botswana. I set a slow shutter speed and panned with the lion, using a 100-400 Canon lens. The light level was so low I could do nothing else.

      Well, it worked just fine ;-) Wonderful effect. You got him in perfect focus. Great light too. I need to try some of this next time.

      Every morning in Africa a gazelle awakens knowing it must today run faster than the fastest lion or it will be eaten. Every morning a lion awakens knowing it must outrun the slowest gazelle or it will starve. It matters not whether you are a gazelle or a lion, when the sun rises you had better be running.
