The last of green..

The last of green..

It’s been over a week now since the last rains fell. The sky is bright blue and there is a definite chill in the air. It seems the rains are over. It has been a drier year than usual in the Valley with the river not breaking it’s banks at all. It was far from a drought though and the ebony groves still flooded in places. It is a magical place to be – floating your boat slowly through a flooded ebony grove with hippos swimming between the trees and kingfishers diving into the water around you..

The Luangwa river has receded now and everything is gradually drying out and turning brown. A few images while the greenness lasts..
