A Lion Cub At Sunset – Weekly Travel Photo

Lion Cubs Playing at Sunset

With a glimmer of light reflected in its eye this young lion club relaxed with its brothers and sisters in South Luangwa National Park in Zambia.  The cubs’ mothers were out hunting and enjoying some free time away from the kids, leaving them to lounge in the late afternoon sun, chew on each other’s tails, and generally do all of the things you’d expect over-sized kittens to do.

The Busy Bosphorus – Weekly Travel Photo

Waiting Ships at Sunset - Istanbul, Turkey

The Bosphorus has served as one of the world’s great maritime thoroughfares for thousands of years.  One aspect of Istanbul that always captures my imagination and fascinates me is the long cue as ships rest moored at the mouth to the channel while awaiting the green light to pass through the heart of the city.  This photo was captured at sunset from the Kadikoy ferry as we left behind the docks of Istanbul’s Asian side and steamed across the Bosphorus, ducking and dodging large tankers and cargo vessels, back to the European side where our hostel was located.

Friday’s Weekly Travel Photo – Golden Rays of Sunset in Malmo Sweden

Sunset Over Malmo

Located immediately across the channel from Copenhagen, it is easy for Malmo to slip beneath traveler’s radar. Often mistakenly hailed as little more than a suburb of Copenhagen, the city is Sweden’s third largest and boasts a rich culture of its own that is distinctly Swedish.  The city is well worth a visit, and should be given ample attention.  It is home to beautiful streets, aged buildings, and a wonderful cafe culture that many visitors fall in love with.  I captured this photo during an early sunset in late February, just in front of the Malmo’s central train station.  The golden hues of the sunset combined with the icy cold air and mixed clouds to create a vivid sunset that slowly transitioned through a wealth of amber and gold hues.
