During an unexpected chance to experience Africa, a seed was planted. Nurtured by subsequent forays into wild places, this photographer was born.

Jacques Cousteau said “People protect what they love.” And we’ve all heard that “A picture is worth a thousand words.” So, enough with this. My photography says the rest. Thanks for listening.

    Sylbia…you made my day…always loved these photos of Sunset on these parts of the world…fav…! your friend!~

  • This is actually one of the first things I see each day. Have a printout of it up in my bedroom. It is a nice way to start the day… But I see it so often, it didn’t occur to me until now that I never uploaded it here. Glad I did and that now you can enjoy it too! ;-)
    p.s. Speaking of enjoy… what are you doing by your computer on this (finally) sunny afternoon? I’m just about to go for a walk. Hope you treat yourself too My Friend!

    Stunning, love that sky xx

  • Thank You Lynn! Admit I love every African sky. And I have to laugh at myself… At home, it’s a chore for me to see dawn. But put me in the wild and i wouldn’t dare miss a single one. ;-)

    OH Sylvia…I’ve been and out all day and have enjoyed the weater much and took planty of pictures…will be going back out again…lol…don’t worry…I don’t stay in much when the weather is nice…and I continue being outside all through the months fall & winter…LOL

  • I should know from all your lovely uploads that you’re out there whenever possible, silly me! I get out as well but often loose my attention span before I get to uploading. Past few days have been beautiful so hopefully I’ll get some of those added. Last night’s sunset yielded me a shot whose color and silhouettes remind me of this sunrise. Not Africa but… ahhh, September in New England!

    Stunning color and silhouette!

  • Thank you Angie for your comments and fave! At home I’m a night owl. But in Africa I transform into a morning person. With rewards like this view, it’s an easy transition. ;-) …Sylvia
