If you’ve been reading my last few posts, you will know that I was in Madagascar for a couple of weeks enjoying some of the unique landscapes and wildlife that Madagascar has to offer.
It was a really cool trip that included a few days in a pirogue down the Tsiribihina River in the West part of the country, a several hours hike through the striking landscapes of the Tsingy de Bemaraha Nature Reserve and some beach and diving time in the beautiful island of Nosy Be.
As you can imagine I have quite a few shots I will be posting over the next weeks and although the one below is probably not the most striking of them I wanted to start with this one to give you an idea of how peaceful and away from everything Madagascar feels. Even though for half of the trip the moon was close to full and constantly present on the sky throughout the night, the sky is so clear that thousands of stars as soon as it gets dark and the Milky Way is clearly visible. I took this image from the beach in Nosy Be where there is so little light pollution that every night you go to bed you have this to look up to.
On another note, while I was away, I remembered that the blog has just turned 5 years old at the end of July. I hope you have enjoyed seeing the images and reading the stories as much as I’ve enjoyed taking them and writing them.
