Lion Sunset

Hi all…another beautifully HOT day in the Kalahari today-probably about 38 degrees C.

Out on my evening drive last night I came across this magnificent lioness relaxing (as lions do best 🙂 ) in the shrubs. She was beautifully framed by another colourful sunset with the oranges, yellows and reds bursting from behind her. This is one of the main reasons that I love this park SO much-every animal etc. that you come across and want to photograph is inevitably framed by (or has a background of) the awesome Kalahari colours. Her landscapes, thunderstorms, sunrises and sunsets make my job as a professional wildlife photographer a little easier when nature performs so well for me.

Let me know what you think by commenting below and if there are any specific questions you want answered or anything in particular you want me to talk about!

That’s it for today…check in again on Monday for another update from me here at my home in the Kalahari.

  1. Hi Hannes
    My boyfriend and I have just come back from a week in the Kalahari. We stopped next to you one evening, while you were snapping away at some lions. We had the most fantastic week – neither of us had ever been to the Kalahari before. I completely understand what you are saying about the colours….. I was awestruck myself. It truly is the most beautiful place on the planet.
    Enjoy your coming weeks. I am deeply envious!
