There’s nothing like an African sunset, although you don’t get these beauties every day. I was told that it is the volcanic dust, stirred up from the ground, that produces the fantastic color. This shot was taken during one of our nights at the Masek tented camp near Lake Masek, in Tanzania.

After being widowed, I needed to find something new to occupy my mind. I chose photography. That turned into an obsession, compounded by my love of the artistic license provided by Photoshop and the many other artful programs that help us explore all the facets of turning a photo into art.

    perfection ~ what a wonderful trip you’ve been on ~ fabulous to share here xx

  • It was a fabulous trip. Dreamed about since the age of 10 but never expected to realize. If Scotty could beam me up and drop me there, I’d go every year. The travel to and from is tough.
