African sunset

“Not another sunset picture…” I hear you say. ‘Fraid so. But not all sunsets are created equal and I like this one because it’s so typically African. I was at Spioenkop Game Reserve in KwaZulu-Natal and as the sun sank lower in the sky, I hurried off to find a position where I could get the sun setting with a typical acacia tree in the foreground. This was easier said than done and a good lesson in how important preparation is – I should have left more time for scouting or, better still, found a suitable location the day before.

In any event, I feel the image works reasonably well and like the way the water in the foreground and, behind that, the receding hills and mountains form layers, giving a sense of perspective and distance.
