Today, you can participate by submitting your personal pictures from your travels to the continent of Africa.

See the winner of the last week´s African Wednesday @timothyallen with the following entry:

This photo was shot at a 'Gerewol' in a remote corner of Niger's Sahara desert near Lake Chad. A Gerewol is a gathering of nomadic Wodaabe people who come together for a few days and (amongst other things) dance together for many hours. This is a photo of one such dance at sunset.

@axeman Asian Sunday entry:

Battle of Gods. Insanely colorful stormy sunset at Tel-Aviv shot in February few years ago. The main beach of Tel-Avis was just splashed by the warm colors of the dawning sun, well mixed with overall cold blue colors
Wide angle lens used to catch most of perspective. Color grading in post-production (LR+PS). Enjoy the scenery :)

7 World’s Continents Photo Challenge - Australian Monday week #54 - winner announcement!

@mibreit-photo Australian Monday entry:

This photo was taken a few years ago during a hike up to Roys Peak near Wanaka in New Zealand. The weather was very dynamic and provided some interesting play of light and shadow. I oped for a black and white here to emphasise those nice contrasts.

Fort Qaitbey in Alexandria Egypt is a must see when visiting. This ancient building is great to explore. Also the Mediterranean Sea is crystal clear. It was very inviting to jump in for a swim but it was the middle of winter and way to cold.


Such a great shot. This looks like a really cool place to visit.


Thank you. Add it to your list if you ever travel through Egypt ☺


Great shot indeed! Well done!


A lady shelters from the rain in a village in Dogon Country, Mali.
Villages in this area are built into the side of a huge escarpments facing the Sahel. The Dogon store grain in thatched granaries like the one you can see in this photo.


This is amazing. I love the composition in this with the man in the background. Everything about this shot is perfect.


What a great capture. I love it!

Jemaa el-Fnaa in Marrakech, Morocco

Jemaa el-Fnaa is not only the largest square in Africa, but also surrounded by colourful markets. At golden hour, they were even more beautiful! After that, I had to fight my way through a horde of pushy salesmen desperately trying to convince me to buy dinner at their stall.

I have also posted this photo on my blog to promote this contest and shared my post to my Twitter account.


Awesome lighting. I want to go to Morocco. It looks like such a cool place to shop.


It is, Morocco's markets are amazing!

I'm a bot. I detect haiku.

For today’s African photo there is one of my favorite shots from that continent.
I don’t know exactly why, but I simply like it. We can see cohesion of flora and fauna there. Big African elephant walking through the horde of impalas those graze in savannah.

What a magnificent animal. That looks like real Africa to me:).....

Dromedary ride Dunes & Desert Douz

The camel ride is a must-see for your douz sight: get to know this elegant mount and walk the tracks through the stone desert and a portion of the palm grove.
Take yourself for Lawrence of Arabia, immerse yourself in nature and discover the unique sensations of this exotic mount: a must-do in Douz!


What an amazing shot!

The columns of Karnak

Karnak Temple Complex in Luxor, Egypt. Great mixture of temples, chapels, pylons and other types of architecture. Construction began in the Middle Kingdom, though most of the building belongs to New Kingdom of Egypt.
Pretty unusual vertical views to the colonnade

Enjoy the scenery!

Oh, love the color of that sky!

My Entry, Inanda Dam in KwaZulu-Natal in South Africa. This gorgeous place is situated in the valley of a thousand hills and offers a wide range of things to occupy your time, from fishing, trail running and of course canoeing, this is one of the stops on the famous Duzi Canoe Marathon.

I very recently did the Rhino Trail run where and managed to capture this beautiful shot. It is an annual trail run which is organised to raise funds for the protection of our endangered Rhinos in South Africa. Last year funds were raised for a pregnant Rhino (Bella), which then gave birth to a healthy baby. The sad thing is that very Rhino (the mother) was poached this year, so all the funds raised this year had to go towards the orphaned baby rhino.

It is very sad that in this day and age we still have people who purchase horn as ell as tusks which only perpetuates the poaching problem. Where there is a demand there will always be supply. So please do not support this cruel disregard for Life on our beautiful planet.

Thank you :-)


What an amazing shot and great entry! Thank you so much.


Thank you, was an awesome run up the mountain, all be it a tad hard, was great fun and had breathtaking views.

The light was a bit low since it was overcast, but all in all a good run for a good cause :-)

Thank you for accepting my entry

The sphinx stands in front of the great pyramids of the Giza plateau, Egypt. Too bad we cannot get closer, I would have liked to explore more this section, but it is not possible. It's crazy that he's still intact after all these years.



Thank you so much for your contribution.

This weekend I did an absolute cracker of a mountain mission with a number of crazy mountain goat friends of mine. The scenery was absolutely spectacular as we did 5 peaks, 35km, 3500 alt gain in the Jonkershoek Valley in South Africa!


Keep exploring...


Great job! Well done Jaco.
