Sunset Saturday XXXXXII

Last week we walked over the Brooklyn Bridge to Dumbo and enjoyed the beautiful views of the Manhattan skyline! New York is such as fantastic place and we were lucky to get some sunny (and even mild) days in the middle of February…

Sunset Saturday XXXXX

Evening sun sparkling in Walvis Bay with three flamingos looking for food in the shallow waters. There were thousands of flamingos at the bay, feeding and standing in the water with their stick-thin legs. We went there during our trip to Namibia and drove through the big sand dunes between Swakopmund and Walvis Bay to…

Sunset Saturday XXXXIX

I took this picture during our trip to Mozambique and KZN in March last year. We were on our way back to the lodge through endless pineapple fields under this beautifully colored evening sky, and could almost see all the way down to the coast.

Sunset Saturday XXXXVIII

Sunset behind palms and rice paddies in Ubud, Bali. During my first trip to Bali we stayed in a villa in the middle of the rice paddies and went for a walk around the area just before sunset. From a distance we could hear the chanting and drumming in a nearby temple and the air…

Sunset Saturday XXXXVII

Evening sky with big clouds and beautiful colors at our house. The past week we’ve been settling back into life here and trying to get into some kind of routine. Our garden is green like never before and our dog seems really happy to have us back. Things are pretty much back to normal, with…

Sunset Saturday XXXXVI

Another wintery evening sky in Bavaria. The last couple of days were sunny and rather cold but still no snow down here. We’re flying back to Botswana today, saying goodbye to winter and hello to summer in the Southern hemisphere!

Sunset Saturday XXXXV

A sunset in the bush at Mabuasehube. The sun was scorching during the day and even the wind was hot, so all we did was hide under the shade and wait for the sun to paint a golden sky behind the thornbushes. As much as I complain, the European winter makes me realise how spoilt…

I finished the year the same way I started it: with a day on the slopes. Except this time there was no sunshine, but snow, snow, snow.Happy New Year!

Sunset Saturday XXXXIII

A winter sunset near my parents’ house in Bavaria. The sun is gone as early as 4pm at this time of the year, making the days quite short, and it is way too warm for snow at the moment, which makes it even darker during the long nights. At least we got to see some…

Sunset Saturday XXXXII

The sky is on fire. A burning, red evening sky over Gaborone. These days, the light over here is just incredible. The rainy season has started for good and different layers of clouds break the sunrays in various colors, making it most spectacular during dusk, like this flaming red, orange and pink. Photo taken by…

Sunset Saturday XXXXI

Here’s a picture of the sun setting over that bridge at the ICC in Durban. COP17 didn’t end on Friday night as discussions were still ongoing, and I left way after sunset on what was supposed to be the last evening. In the end, a solution was agreed upon in the early hours of Sunday…

Sunset Saturday XXXX

I am still in Durban and running around the ICC, climbing over the bridge, organizing things, attending meetings, and hoping for some successful outcome of the COP17. In all this craziness, I hardly know what the weather is like during the day, and I certainly didn’t have time to take any scenic pictures (yet). So…

Sunset Saturday XXXIX

A peaceful, quiet evening sky behind the high reed at Gaborone dam. Love the fluffy little clouds up there – these days it’s more about big mountains of thundery clouds piling up all over the sky as the rainy season has (finally) started. Happy weekend!

Sunset Saturday XXXVIII

Sunset over the Chobe River during our boat cruise last weekend. It was an incredibly hot day and only started to cool down a little in the evening, so it was great to be on the water and get some breeze on the boat. There were many fires over in Namibia, and a lot of…
