Neelutpaul says:

I was driving along the meandering forest tracks in Lake Nakuru National Park (Kenya). Black ominous clouds loomed and rain became imminent. I was in pursuit of the well-known tree climbing lion pride in the national park when I chanced upon this lion resting behind a dead tree. I prayed it walked up the dead tree and provided some unique photo opportunities. As I waited patiently, it started to drizzle and the drizzle soon turned into a heavy shower. I feared the lion might continue to stay behind the dead tree, sheltered from the rain. Time and light were both running out. While rain adds drama, it also depletes the natural light especially under the canopy in a woodland forest. To my good fortune, patience paid off and there was a brief window of opportunity when the king took to his throne, allowing me to capture a rather ethereal moment.

About Neelutpaul:

India

I am Neelutpaul Barua from India. I grew up in the remote tea gardens of Assam (India), and my tryst with the pristine beauty of Northeast India early in life has had a huge impact in my journey as a nature photographer. I am a risk management professional and enjoy spending my free time photographing nature and wildlife. My experience with wildlife photography has been immensely satisfying. While I have acquired a fair bit of the art and science of photography, the more rewarding part has been the awareness and realization of how precious our natural world is. Over the years I have been fortunate to travel to forests in India, Africa and Russia photographing different species and educating myself on challenges around wildlife conservation.
