Every now and then after heavy rain on the slopes of Kilimanjaro,

Lake Amboseli appears, and when it does the birdlife is prolific.

Great shots, especially love the first one of the burning forest, it looks like a painting, almost surreal.

I agree, magnificent photos.

 

Just not sure they belong in the African photography section...

African section? I thought it was "a picture a day, from anywhere" ? Ooops! :)

Probably there should be a "picture a day, from anywhere" thread?

Opp's I hadn't noticed it was Africa, my ice images are defiantly out of place, wouldn't see that much ice not even on Kilimanjaro.

@@Geoff Well in that case I'll put another up for show, the cold of a frozen Icelandic glacial lake complete with Iceberg.

 

Camera Canon 50D and a Canon 24-70mm lens but can't remember the settings used.

Like @@Big Andy I hadn't realised the scope of this thread was so wide.....so here are a couple of pictures from Batu Caves just outside Kuala Lumpur.

Three more before I disappear to Singapore for the weekend to watch the F1 race.......astonishing sleeping place and position of a Macaque.

@@Big Andy. Thanks for reminding me how beautiful the UK is.

I am fortunate to live on the south coast now, a big change from London, and my back garden is the beautiful South downs National park.

Wednesday 28th Sept. Took a walk in the Autumn sunshine along the cliffs in

the South downs National park, Sussex, UK. One of my favourite places.

Seaford head gives the best views of the famous "Seven sisters".

This is where the landing scene from "Robin Hood Prince of thieves" was shot.

@@Whyone? Well the Bearded Pig is a four-legged version of a Maribou Stork I think, one of the ugliest creatures I've seen, but that long snout is fascinating. @@PHALANX, how lovely, only thing missing is Ross Poldark astride his horse.

Given the nature (no pun intended!) of this website, this image probably(!) pushes @@Game Warden's specification for this thread to breaking point!

 

Howevere, for me this certainly fits as one of my "...most memorable images: favourite photographs, taken anywhere in Africa, India or elsewhere on your travels: wildlife, landscapes, people, architecture..."

 

Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes W06 F1 car giving up the ghost at last weekends Malaysian GP at the Sepang circuit.

Safer territory here than flaming F1 cars - Stork-billed kingfisher, Kinabatangan river (Sabah, Borneo).
