The photograph titled "Captured" was awarded an "Opera Segnalata - Highlight" in the Mammals category, while the photograph "Lion in the starry night" received an "Oasis Magazine Award Commended" in the same category. Both images are taken in Maasai Mara in Kenya and part of my wide angle lion project.
