Beautiful African sunset glows in this arid river bed with tree trunks. In this photograph, the fierce orange light mixed with a bit of yellow shines over the ground of a river bed. The African sunset colors are beautifully spread with the dust floating in the air around the tree trunks. The subject is a broken tree trunk standing in a dry river bed emphasized by the glow of orange. What makes the dust? It is not the wind. It is about 800-1000 zebras, wildebeests, and giraffes, creating this scenario.

Witnessing this spectacle of wildlife whirling up so much dust is impressive. The beautiful sunset colors of red and orange light shining through the dust cloud. The colors of the setting sun made the scene glow fabulously. Tree trunks are casting shadows on the ground. Waves on the river bed floor are glowing in red and orange. Indeed a colorful and mysterious landscape photograph. Surprisingly, as fast as the wildlife appeared, they disappeared.

The African sunset with the tree trunks we photographed in Makgadikgadi Pans, Botswana. Indeed the Makgadikgadi Pans are endless vast white plains. However, during the rainy season, they come to life with endless grasses and water. Birds are thriving, and it also brings herds of game. African sky filled with the vibrant sunset colors are just as beautiful against the grassy plains.

      It seemed that way with this vibrant African sunset and the cloud of dust. Thanks so much, Jacques.
