photo of the week
Every week I'm on the road I choose a photo of the week. Sometimes it's a fantastic photo, other times it's all about what that shot meant to me. Be sure to let me know what you think.
Crossing Western Sahara and Mauritania is miles and miles of flat desolate country. This day we were lucky to have new bitumen, althought for whatever reason it wasn't wide enough so every time a truck passed us we both had to get two wheels off the road. I Love how the black highlights the distance and also how desolate the landscape really is.
When you see the sunrise photos from Africa they have this giant glowing orb that looks so spectacular. In practicality the glow is dust. Its just an unclear sun rising, however the sunsets always seem much clearer and way more dramatic. I'd forgotten how amazing sunsets on the west coast of anywhere can be and Africa is no different. This was from a bush camp in Western Sahara after the sun had dipped below the horizon, but as you know, in the west that's the time it gets really great.
Jenny - photography lover but someone who hates lugging around HUGE camera's so my images are all from my Olympus OMD or my little Sony digital.
