Thirstland Rainbow

by Mark Dumbleton

Incredible sunrise light expands across the sky, illuminating heavy storm clouds and rain in a striking display of colour and incredible rainbow over the desert thirstland of the Kalahari. Photographed in Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, Northern Cape, South.
Equipment: Nikon D800, Nikon 14-24 f/2.8

I am a landscape and wildlife photographer from Johannesburg in South Africa and I’m driven by a passion to experience and explore the wilderness areas of Africa. I have travelled extensively throughout my home country of South Africa and cross international borders into Namibia, Botswana and Kenya. Born with an appreciation for the natural world, I thrive on photographic exploration in search of unique perspectives and nuances of moments witnessed.

Looks like two Trees are dancing the Raindance free under a Sunlight Bow in the Kalahari Wilderness. Wonderful Photo.
