A few from the last couple of weeks. Pilots tell me the inversion is up to well over 10,000' right now, the smoke and dust is enough. The heat is such that our solar pump controller is shutting down at lunchtime (I want to do the same). Bring on the rains (and it isn't even October)!

Samburu Sunset

 

Photographed at 6:41 pm on 28 April, 2014 in Samburu National Reserve, Kenya, using an EOS 1D X camera and an EF 400mm f/2.8L IS II super-telephoto lens.

 

ISO 800, 1/125 sec., f/4, 400mm focal length, handheld Manual exposure.

 

****************************************************************************************************

 

This is the first sunset I ever experienced in Samburu. It had been an eventful day, with my first-ever leopard sighting.

 

The evening's quiet approach, with cool air and insect noises, left a powerful impression of Africa's timeless beauty.
