Karanga Campsite By Night
Tanzania

Ice cold, clear night in the Karanga camp on the southern slopes of Kilimanjaro in about 4000 m altitude. From the valley below illuminate the lights of Moshi and Arusha in the south up to the west. In the north, the shadowy summit of Uhuru peak is visible with its glacial tongues. And above all, a starry sky stretched with innumerable bright stars.


It was quite a grind to drag along on this tour  all the camera equipment with tripod, remote release, fisheye, spare batteries, memory cards and all other stuff. But it paid off!
(...even if the picture is a little bit noisy, the stars have formed lines in part due to long exposure time, the image is blurred in parts .....)

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
