Thought my Photogrphy friends would enjoy these, taken by my cousin Paul Goldstein at his camp Kicheche. His description:
‘Two Belgian Photographers had dropped their tripod from their vehicle. It would have taken a couple of seconds to retrieve, unfortunately for them the lions were there in one. It took a little while for them to realize it wasn’t a meal before they used the camera for what it was intended for. Remarkably one young male managed to erect the tripod before setting up the shot.
Paul added. ‘The photographers did get their battle-scarred gear back after 15 minutes. The camera astonishingly still worked but is unlikely to fetch much on eBay now.’ Paul also stresses ‘ these are totally genuine. If anyone wishes to check the raw files they are welcome to, there is no digital sorcery or fraudulent manipulation involved."
