I have been wanting an excuse to use this series
of photos for just over three years.
Now, thanks to Patrick,
I can show anyone who has not been there…
how isolated one could feel at
Botswana’s Lekhubu Island…
which is situated in the Makgadikgadi Salt Pans.
largest salt flats in the world.
The pan is all that remains of the formerly
enormous Lake Makgadikgadi which once
covered an area larger than Switzerland,
but dried up several thousand years ago.
It does not take long to explore this
island in the salt…
and just as I was thinking well that’s all there is….
the sun set among ancient baobab trees.
Naturally it had to rise next morning.
And were in an ideal position to capture both events.
