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.

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!!

I only have a modest Canon A640 but any hints for photos of a sunset, sunrise would be more than appreciated, because I have tried on many occasions and have miserably failed. HELP pleast

Very nice!!

Just got back from Lower Zambezi . There was lots of water because the Kariba Dam had 3 gates open.

Even if you fishing was unsuccessful, you "captured" some stunning silhouettes...
