So after taking yesterday’s photo, I headed out to the airstrip for an aerial view from a light aircraft. Now the flights are operated by helicopters but back in 1987, fixed wing aircraft were used. What made it even worse for a photographer was it was a low-wing aircraft, not a high-wing so inevitably the wing ended up in the images.
If I go back, for sure I’ll take the helicopter ride!
In this image we’re technically over Zambia, looking west to Zimbabwe at the top of the photo. The cloud of spray at the top of the photo was the cloud in which the rainbow in yesterday’s image was formed. In this image you can make out another rainbow on the southern (left) edge of the gorge.
Halfway down the left side of the photo you can see the gorge through which the Zambezi flows below the falls on its way to the Indian Ocean by way of Lake Kariba.
