African Sunset.

Think sunset at a watering hole on safari and you imagine the animals coming down to the watering hole like a scene out of the Lion King. 

The reality is a row of cars jostling for position and this is the view the rest of us see. 

This photo was taken in 2013 on safari at Kruger National Park . 

I’m taking a break from my normal construction photography in Dubai as I’m currently in South Africa and then back to the UK for a family wedding. I’m not here on holiday (hence an old photo) I’m here doing some charity work for a Christmas gift project and spending my time packing and wrapping shoeboxes in a storage unit in Centurion. It doesn’t make for good photos, hence why I’m sharing the one above.

  1. Ah, every photographer /instagrammer vying to get the best shot of the sunset? Very frustrating but your pic is, at least, an accurate portrayal of what happened!

  2. Ha ha, what a shame that's all you actually get to see! Hope all is going well with your charity work. Hope to catch up with you in October.

    1. i should've said i took this shot after leaving the watering hole lol

  3. Haha got to get that photo. I hope the show box charity does well

    Have a good Sunday and thank you for linking up to #MySundayPhoto

  4. I'd love to go on safari one day, it will have to wait a long time till we retire though as leaving Coombe Mill to go that distance would be impossible. for now I'll admire your safari sunset.

    1. you could have your own mini beast safari at coombe mill

  5. I hope the charity work is going well.
    Fantastic photo x

  6. Hi Suzanne, we spent three days in the Kruger National park for our honeymoon and it was amazing. It was also where my family and my husbands family got to know each other. I hope you manage to get a little time to relax and enjoy South Africa whilt you are there, but knowing you will help make someones Christmas must be the best feeling of all.



    1. not a lot of time off, but going back again in december with Peter
