Africa, my Africa

The Africa I remember had a six month dry season where, in early November the thunderclouds built and a heavy deluge would descend twice a day, punctuated by hot humid temperatures. The dramatic sky in this piece gives a feeling of the sultry conditions and the lush greenery only a few days after the first rains.

Within a month the transformation to the savannah  is startling with colour and rich greenery erupting everywhere. The animals disappear within the deep undergrowth, glimpsed briefly as they move within it grazing on its abundance.
