Last week I managed to catch the moon in a final stage before it had fully waxed. I took the photo above while at the club on Wednesday, 2 May
The next morning on the way to Shinyanga airport to catch the early morning flight to Dar es Salaam, I managed to photograph the sun rising over the African veld. As always the ubiquitous thorn tree graces the landscape Although the photo was taken from a fast moving vehicle and has a slight blur, it is totally un-enhanced. This is Africa at its best!
On Saturday 5th May, just before full moon, I managed to photograph the moon again from my very treed and bushy garden. You can make out distortions in the foreground which are leaves/branches through which I had to focus!
