A re­ally pow­er­ful image, taken at Rooiputs Wa­ter­hole in the Kgala­gadi Trans­fron­tier Park. Anthony has gone down to ground level and is lit­er­ally en­gag­ing eye-to-eye with the li­on­ess at a wa­ter­hole. It’s not a tech­ni­cally dif­fi­cult shot, but it’s nicely bal­anced, crispy sharp, well ex­posed and taken in good light all key el­e­ments in cre­at­ing a great shot. The tim­ing is spot on, cap­tur­ing the ex­act mo­ment the tongue slurps the wa­ter. I like the use of a lim­ited depth of field, which re­duces the dis­trac­tion cre­ated by the white stones in the back­ground.
