That's lovely, in all respects.

It's enough to motivate me to book another safari!

Thank you for posting such a fine end-of-the-day image.

There is nothing like the magical hour in Africa.

 

You can not find this blood-sun anywhere else in the world. This is one of hundred reasons why I keep coming back to this continent.

They're beautiful photographs.

I agree with you that the vibrant sun tones draws me back to Africa.

Thank you for posting them.

Good morning from Dogbekope Village, Volta Region, Ghana :P Dogbekope is in SE Ghana, very close to the border with Togo, along the shore of the Keta Lagoon. The second photo was taken when the sun was higher in the sky and shows one of main economic enterprises of the region, salt harvesting. You can see the salt evaporation pools in the background. These were taken on a trip to the village last weekend.

I'm back in Ghana now, after 4 months in the US working on business development. Now back here in Ghana indefinitely so be expecting more photos and trip reports! I've been posting to my blogs (see links below), most recently about my visit to the village. It's nice to see everyone back here on ST, glad to be back in the community!

Welcome back to Safaritalk!

It's truly a pleasure to have you with us again.

A West African resident is especially precious as a contrast with eastern and southern Africa.

Your photos are consistently delightful — windows to life in another region in Africa about which so little is posted.

Thank you so much!

Thank you! Your presence on Safaritalk adds luster, with your fine example of dedicating your talents to supporting those in Ghana working to improve their lives and communities.

Any wildlife, great or small, which you share with us will be a joy to see.

The sunset is behind me, but the clouds and the moon rising were amazing. Last night on the inevitable Kafue river.

Your lovely image above is quite a surprise for me!

Why?

Because several days ago I was reading about that area of Uganda. I never expected to see any image from there posted in Safaritalk this week.

Thank you for adding it!

Dear @@Tom Kellie, thank you and what a coincidence! Where did you read about the Uganda Imatongs if i may ask?

 

Here a photo of the Imatong Mountains, north Uganda

As it happens, of late I've developed an interest in Uganda's Kidepo Valley National Park.

While reading about the park, I began to wonder what lay beyond, within a 300 kilometer radius.

That inevitably led me to the Uganda Imatongs.

Thank you so much for sharing the very nice image of them.
