King and Kingdom by mitchellkrog King and Kingdom by mitchellkrog
Iíve wanted to capture a lion in this exact setting for some time and I was chuffed to finally have this come true. This male, the leader of the pride we encountered in the Maasai Mara, stood proud on top of this mound for a short moment before he and the pride started moving off. I love the feel of this image with the vast amount of space and the lion looking off into his kingdom, for me this is very reminscent of a scene from the Lion King.

And this is the way, how the movie come to reality...
This is absolutelly awesome shot. Maybe one of the best, which I ever seen. I love lions, I love moments like this, I love great photo like this. And this is amazing combination of all my these"loves". My opinion is that you will never forget the situation, when you take this picture. I am right?

This is such a wonderful shot! I used to love that movie when I was younger. Brings back memories... I love the back and white with this as well, it fits the subject nicely.
