G.W., that would be good, I'm always using the 'like' button on Facebook, but here I always try to vary the praise.

That "like" button won't suffice for these pictures of Marc's ...... we need something new to say how much we appreciate these!!!

 

Awesome ....... That first picture is as unique as any you'll see EVER ......

Not good enough Marc, where's the eland silhouette? Isn't that a sunrise/sunset as well?

 

Seriously though, beautiful photos …where's your next trip going to be?

Next trip is a small boat cruising Alaska's Inside Passage & US/Yellowstone NP this May, possibly Sth America next year (Rossana is from Uruguay) so can't complain..................it's just that it ISN'T Africa!! :D

Paul, I like it very much. Shows the difference in the light from the sun which has been split by the cloud. Good work.

Wow! Some amazingly beautiful images!

 

I was on a game drive once and wanted to stop for sunset pictures. The people in the backseat said to each other - "Why do we need to stop? You can take pictures of the sunset at home." Yeah, maybe so. But I have never seen a sunset like these at home.

 

Here are a couple of my faves

If you had sunsets like these back home, you'd be less inclined to go to Africa I bet.

Marc,

 

As always stunning images - your first picture is "out of this world".

 

Cindy,

 

You have an eye for photography - really great stuff.

 

 

Ciao,

 

J.

Breath taking photographs, I keep trying but as yet have not managed a good one. We do get good sunsets here in France but it doesnt "smell" the same!!
