EDITORS COMMENTS
In this print captured by Alf Markey, we are transported back to the tranquil gardens of Blackpool Zoo in June 1976. The image showcases a majestic lion, peacefully slumbering atop a massive stone within the confines of his enclosure. As the afternoon sun bathes the scene in warm hues, one cannot help but be captivated by the sheer beauty and grace exuded by this magnificent creature. The lion's regal presence is palpable even in sleep, with its powerful muscles relaxed and its golden mane cascading around its noble face. Its eyes closed gently, perhaps dreaming of distant savannahs or past hunting triumphs. This snapshot perfectly encapsulates both the awe-inspiring strength and undeniable vulnerability that coexist within these big cats. The garden setting adds an element of serenity to the composition, as vibrant flowers bloom nearby and lush greenery envelops the enclosure. It serves as a reminder that even kings of their domain require moments of respite from their royal duties. Markey's skillful lens captures not only a moment frozen in time but also evokes emotions within us - admiration for nature's wonders and a sense of tranquility inspired by witnessing such raw beauty at rest. This photograph stands as a testament to our enduring fascination with lions and reminds us why they have long held an esteemed place in our collective imagination.
