Written by , Posted in Art, Poetry and Pretty Things

Snow Lion in Joburg

Written by , Posted in Art, Poetry and Pretty Things

There have been some beautiful, breathtaking and feel-good pictures thanks to the snowfall in and around Joburg today. But this is hands down the best of the lot. Major hat tip to Lorna Fuller, who appears to have captured this incredible image of one of the lions at the Joburg Zoo. I love living in South Africa.
