Sunset on the Kalahari by SilEnigmaArts Sunset on the Kalahari by SilEnigmaArts
He has had his fill for now. Tomorrow he will hunt again.
He turns to watch the vultures circling as the sun sets on the Kalahari.

the lighting... I have no words, greatly done, especially as you had to deal with a sunset which I'd say is one of the most difficult light settings (shadows and outlines can be a nightmare!). Besides, it's somewhat dramatic and calm at the same time. There is something majestic about the lion, yet I can't help but feel pity for the poor kudu... well... life!

The cycle of life ... mankind feels pity, remorse or grief when it is taken away. Everything exists till it is their turn.
This concept was a thought I had in my mind for many years, I just didn't know how I wanted to visualise it. I cannot be happier with how it eventuated after all this time. Happy you like it too Judy...thank you :hug:

Sometimes I've got the same, some concepts are in my mind for quite a long time before I find suitable stocks or gain some skills to visualise them :) But then I also think it's worth the wait!
You're very welcome :rose: :hug:
