In the morning

Acacia tree, Namibia, March 2010

With the first light it's easy to wake up in our tent and enjoy the cool and beautiful morning. Not to forget that we got lots of sleep when we went on the foam mattress with the last light.

Acacia are realy majestic trees. But we had to be careful. The huge thorns got stuck in our car tire and two times we had a puncture.

Thank you Klaus, Sandy, Wren and Sylvia from the Skywatch Team.

Acacia tree is one of the most precious trees that we have back home. This photo made me miss home.

Terrific shot!

Roses have thorns, acacias have thorns--I wonder what the moral of the story is...


I wonder why
Some love the sky
But not the wind and rain.

I wonder, friend,
If sky will end—
It’s too much for my brain!

Misalyn must be from the Philippines. We have lots of them there. And yes, they are majestic, especially yours, with the sun rising.
