ARCHIVE KENYA 93 – THE VIEW SOUTH FROM BABOON CLIFFS

 

 


.

The view south from Baboon Cliffs at Lake Nakuru; 27 Apr 1980.

Looking out across the lake on a calm day – which, in this area of convectional rainfall, can often turn into a towering thunderstorm later in the afternoon.

Nakuru is a soda lake in the rift valley’s floor and this view looks southwards down the rift.  The hills on the horizon, below the white clouds, are a group of small volcanoes, and the freshwater Lake Naivasha is just over the horizon to the left of them.

Photographer - using mono, colour and combinations of the two - many types of subject, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous, trying new ideas, working in multiple genres. And I've a weakness for Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    What a view! So lovely and peaceful looking. Was it peaceful? Can you remember the sounds?

      Hahaha!!! >>> this was 40 years ago! >>> and even then I had far more hair than was immediately apparent! Yes it was peaceful – for a start there were no raucous roars from “The King of the Jungle”! Standing there, 40 years back, I think I would have heard just the soft breeze and perhaps some small birds. But going down to the lakeside though, and getting near a flamingo flock, would have been another thing, that would have been very noisy. 🙂
