The King – Basking in the Sun by Leanne Lindsay

Getting in nice and close to see all the detail in this majestic face. I also love the way he was resting on his paw and enjoying the sun. The King, so majestic, yet so peaceful. It was amazing to be up so close to this amazing animal. He wasn’t the least bit bothered by me. He must have had a full belly. I struggle sometimes to capture the detail in a photograph so with this one, I was focusing on the detail – the way he was leaning on his paw, the way his eyes were closed so peacefully, the way the sun lit up his golden mane. Perfection!

Born in Adelaide in 1962, Leanne Lindsay’s family moved to Sydney when she was 12 years old. She was gifted her first camera for her 21st birthday but a break-in saw her precious camera stolen just 3 years later. It was only in her late 50s she was able to afford to replace it and now in her 60s she has discovered a passion that was sadly lost many years ago. She now photographs families and newborns but enjoys architectural photography and landscapes in particular.
