Rural sunset


Beautiful eyes


Enjoying the Gibson Steps Beach


Light up an evening sky.





This image is definitely a favourite.

Fortunately, or perhaps, unfortunately, visitors

are longer allowed to do this,

so I have been told.


There is nothing like a good rural sunset.

No smog, no noise and the sky

Students at Work

People/portrait photography

is one of my favourite genres.

These two were very friendly and had

a good chat while we drank our coffee.

Makgadikgadi Salt Pans,

in the North East corner of

Botswana’s, Kalahari Desert.


 Once upon a time, this saltpan

was a vast inland lake.

Now it is a vast bed of salt

and where animals find water

is beyond my knowledge.
