@@Soukous that karibia shot looks like a scene straight out of Waterworld.

 

do you mean the awful Kevin Costner film? @@Kitsafari

@@Soukous it was a terrible movie. A dud.

 

It's jus that your picture made me think that will be what a flooded abandoned world will look like. It's hauntingly beautiful.

the sun setting over Lake Karibia - viewed from Rhino Safari Camp

Sunset over the Zambezi and hills of Zambia, Mana Pools October 2013.   The birds flying above the sun are quellia, returning home to roost in Zambia. Huge flocks of quellia were an unusual feature

What's The Point

We see a lot of sunrises, as we're always ready to go before the sun is up ! Africa is no place to be having late mornings in bed.

These are a couple of my favourites. (All handheld)

@@Game Warden - That first one was one of the most insane things I have ever seen. I was expecting a choir of angels to appear and start sing at any second !

Dreaming of Africa from my window, new years morning. Very Africa like.

 

I know, we are in the bush of Virginia, so this is a " Dreaming Africa Sunrise"

Usually the oystermen are sailing by on the way to work....love it.

You are way kind; but yes it is our little world of sunrises most every day. Very addicting as well.

 

You are most welcome as are any ST'rs if anytime on the east coast - in Virginia on Chesapeake Bay, not too terribly far from Washington DC.

 

We love company esp. if they talk Africa! :D
