Sunrise touching Mt Kilimanjaro: the view from Amboseli Game Reserve in southwest Kenya; Nov 1977.

At over 19,000 feet, this is Africa’s highest mountain and snow can be seen around the top.  But both the snow and the glaciers there may be gone within a few decades – they are melting fast.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

      Glad you like it, Lisa – thank you! Did you use CT18 too? Kodak slide films just didn’t do it for me, they always seemed too blue or green, but CT18’s very slightly brown cast was just the thing, especially for landscapes. Hope your autumn is going well! It is getting warmer here, but Bristol is today sitting under depressions coming in from the Atlantic, and its pouring down! Adrian 🙂

    I climbed Kili nine years ago and there was a lot less snow than is visible in this shot, Adrian.

      That’s interesting to hear, Andy – “the times they are a-changing”! Of course, geologically, the times have changed before, and very radically too, and I still wonder how much of the current change has that origin. Adrian
