In the Merzouga sand dunes in the south of the kingdom of Morocco, around sunset.
It was my chance meeting with a caravan of camels guided by a nomad of the region, and which magically caught my eye.
So as I admired the beautiful sunset, I found myself in good company and I could not miss the opportunity to take some pictures because all the elements were well set.
So, I clicked the trigger to immortalize this hypnotic moment in the Merzouga sand dunes

Maasai Warriors help protect Lions in Kenya.

Maasai warrior Kamunu Saitoti scans the Kenyan rangelands for a signal from a number of lions that have been fitted with radio collars.
Saitoti is part of an organisation called Lion Guardians, a conservation initiative started in 2007 to find ways for the Maasai and lions to coexist.
Scientists estimate that lion populations in Africa have fallen by more than 40% in the past 20 years and the 20,000 or so wild lions that remain occupy just 8% of the species’ historical range.
