This entire pride of lions (panthera leo) crossed in front of our jeep one morning just after a rain. They were all a bit bedraggled and very gaunt. Gathering just at the ridge line they carefully surveyed the valley below for any chance of lunch. We couldn’t see into the valley so we’ll never know if there were zebra or antelope on the menu.

After being widowed, I needed to find something new to occupy my mind. I chose photography. That turned into an obsession, compounded by my love of the artistic license provided by Photoshop and the many other artful programs that help us explore all the facets of turning a photo into art.
