Lion's Repose

Embers from the sun, Exhaustion wearing him down; Intensity in his eyes, Collapsed on the ground, Relaxing in the cool wind; Yellow mane flowing freely.

    A lion catching his breath is a sight to see, seeing one in repose is pure beauty. Nice job...Raul

    Highway song to travel all the way into the very last piece of land that was able to keep itself stable near to the sun; I suddenly felt like if daylight was at its maximum...that was awsome!!!=D Still images tell so much, even without intentionally wanting to (I guess we all work like that); thanks for the experience =D
