Three Sunsets in One

My last sunset in Entebbe … and it didn’t disappoint.

It was like three sunsets in one evening … every time I would look up, the colours seemed to change.

And on the other side of the lake, a different reflection …

All with that same water-colour wash effect …

I’ll really miss these sunsets …

 

 

Sunset on the Old Year

Where has all the time gone?
In between the travelling and catching up with life once back home, it’s suddenly the last day of the year!

I have all these posts in my head that I’ve been planning … and not one of them has made it to blogland before the end of the year.  Perhaps a new resolution should be to be more spontaneous … not to take too much time planning these posts …

You have been great friends to keep up with me and my intermittent postings, and I hope to see you all back here during the next year.

Here’s wishing all a healthy, safe and happy new year.

See you in 2013 !

 

 

 

The Bucker Jungmeister

As the Sukois were finishing up their display, the next flight act was announced. DS2_3219 Captain Howard Davenport was getting ready to take off in his Bucker Jungmeister.  With the lead-up to this next act, I figure it had to be something important.  After all, with the exception of the air force jet and the Sukois, Capt. Davenport, the flying ace, seemed to have piloted most of the planes for the show. DS2_3244

Is he flying upside down in this?  But of course, he is.

I didn’t know I was watching a renowned and famous pilot.  Read more about Capt. Howard Davenport and his Bucker Jungmeister here.

The Sukois SU-30

The Sukois are finally up in the air. As they take off, the crowd follows their flight up and across the sky.

They make their loop around Lake Victoria, and zoom in on the crowd.

And with a thunderous roar, they are over the crowd.

They release their high-intensity flares, as they split off.

There’s some short videos of their acrobatic displays, which I will post as soon as it’s been edited. In the meantime, hope you enjoy these photos.

 

The Cessna

Planes out on display … or maybe they were already done with their show.

Releasing its 200 gallons of water …

For a moment I thought that it would be nice and refreshing for a little sprinkle to cool us off … then remembered that we would probably get totally soaked, and how would I keep the camera dry?
