Lakeside Harmony (41)
|For Anna, Thanks for thinking of me and your encouragement.|
This is another shot of my favorite moment from this trip. This one focused a little more on the impalas, as they strolled leisurely in front of us while I was just happy photographing the flamingos. With the impalas in front of the lake was just so amazing I could believe it was me being there at the moment. Even now looking at this image, I still feel like the most fortunate person alive.
Lake Nakuru is one of the Rift Valley soda lakes. It lies to the south of Nakuru, in central Kenya and is protected by a small Lake Nakuru National Park. The lake's abundance of algae attracts the vast quantity of flamingos that famously lines the shore.
Nakuru means "Dust or Dusty Place" in Maasai language. Lake Nakuru National Park, close to Nakuru town, was established in 1961. It started off small, only encompassing the famous lake and the surrounding mountainous vicinity. Now it has been extended to include a large part of the savannahs.
