Weekly Photo Challenge: Glow

We have just recently returned from a wonderful safari trip to Tanzania.  When I saw the subject of this week’s challenge, I immediately went to this photo.  I took this after one our first days in the wild at Tarangire National Park.  We were staying at a wilderness camp with just my wife and I, our guide, and 3 beautiful people to take care of our every need in camp.  I selected this photo as it captures many glows – the fading sunglow on the horizon, the star glow appearing in the darkening sky, the moon glow almost directly overhead, and the glow from our campfire embers both on the ground and reflected in the massive Baobab Tree above.  This is a scene to remember for many years to come.
