The above pics were taken by Rebecca. The colour isnt so good - the air was really thick and misty with alot of dust in the air from Africa. Rebeccas camera - although a good one - hasnt got all the sophisticated lenses etc to help counteract the bad light but the result is pretty good all the same. Suppose they can be enhanced on the computer!
