Bukoba Dawn!

Back in Tanzania. One last morning on holiday. Bukoba Dawn! 


Weekly Photo Challenge: Yellow Sunsets

Many of this week’s submission was also submitted in an earlier photo challenge- work of art

Sunrises and sunsets from across the globe – although red is a predominant colour, I think that yellows and golds are major components of a good sunrise/sunset

Wag Hill Dawn

Whilst away at Wag Hill we had a fantastic dawn on Sunday morning – although many of the photos are already in the Wag Hill post I thought they deserved their own post with a few extra. The photos were not of the sunrise  in the East, but of the effect of the light on the storm clouds out to the West.

Life in Mwanza will be different, not least in the regularity of sun rise and sun sets. Twelve hour days and twelve hour nights, day in day out. My experiences of The Gambia and The Far East found it a strange thing for it to be both hot and dark in the evening. In the UK that never happens – long dark nights mean winter, long bright days mean summer. Equatorial living is something I’m just going to have to get used to!
