This summer I was lucky enough to travel to Zimbabwe. Whilst I was there I went to antelope park, where I did a Lion cub walk at 6am. The timing was so beautiful as you get the orange tint sunrise. The cubs were very playful and moved around us a lot, so you always had to be on guard. This image captures that moment of breath, where the lions were still. I was lucky enough to encapsulate the lion looking straight into the lens to project an intense, striking atmosphere.
