Light pollution has meant that many of us cannot see stars again at where we live.
If I was fortunate, I may see a comet as well.
Here is a picture taken by my wife last year while travelling in Namibia, Africa.
Here you can see countless stars which make you appreciate the vastness of the universe.
This week’s DP’s Photo Challenge is Edge.
Imagine that you are close to the edge of a waterfall . . . . . . .
This picture of the Victoria falls was taken by my sister-in-law while flying above the waterfall.
Even at this height, you can feel the power of this magnificent fall.
I have climbed some sand dunes before but never as high as these sand dunes in Namibia.
These rules, although quite common sense, should best be followed.
You stay on the dark side of the dune – so that the sand is not as hot.
Don’t forget to bring snacks and water.
Have a mask ready in case the wind blows up a lot of sand.
These pictures were taken by my wife earlier last month in Namibia, Africa.
I like looking at a big flock of flamingos.
Greater flamingos (Phoenicopterus ruber) breed at large, flooded shallow salt pans as well as coastal mudflats, inland dams, small ephemeral rivers, river mouths and sewage treatment works. Flocks of tens to tens of thousands, usually with lesser flamingos, are common.
The population is scattered in southern, central and northern Namibia.
Their long legs are especially adapted for wading in the water.
Both pictures were taken by my wife last month in Namibia, Africa.
