Almost sunset and a good time for mamas to play with the children…
Or for lads to roll and loll…
Or a cheetah to snooze in the grass beside a mulului tree…
And then for humans to watch day’s end over the Mara plains…
Lens-Artists: Serene This week Patti invites us all to stop and ponder on peaceful scenes. As ever, these views are from the old Africa album.

Amazing images from another time and place.
I wish I were back there – in the bush. Ah, well. Can think myself there. Almost.
All wonderful of course Tish. There is nothing quite like sunsets in Africa – I suppose because there is no ambient light or air quality issue to compete with them. Your images took me right back there so thank you very much for that. These creatures and the areas where they roam are so very special.
Happy to do a bit of transporting, Tina. And thanks for all those thoughtful thoughts.
memorable times for you Tish! that last photo- sunset and an acacia tree – beautifully classic and so apt for the winter solstice too!
Thank you for that solstice connection, Laura. It’s very pleasing to ponder on.
Wish I was there…
Yep. Me too.
I would love to visit.
In the first photo are those rocks or ant hills? Just wondering .
Hi Beverly. They are rocks. This was the only spot in the Mara where we saw this particular geological phenomenon. I’m assuming it was the result of some long past volcanic eruption.
That album is full of gorgeous photos, Tish. The rolling lads made me laugh, I love the cheetah shots, and that last is so peaceful. Well done as always.
Glad you enjoyed these, Janet. That cheetah was amazing. She just lay there while leaned out of the truck and took her photo.
Nothing like a cooperative cheetah. 😁
I always love seeing your Africa images, which really capture the magic of the place! The cheetah is especially beautiful – what great shots you have of him!
That was a very special moment.
I can imagine!
Amazing and wonderful and I can believe that you would like to be back there. Beautiful shots of the sunsets, trees and animals.
Many thanks, Agnes.
What a stunning album, Tish. The light in these photos is gorgeous. The nature in that part of the world is stunning. All the best in the new year. 😀
All best wishes to you too, Patti.
That’s such a lovely time of the day there. I recall driving at random, watching a single young lion gaze at the sunset, or a small family of giraffes loom over the horizon as they move slowly towards an acacia.
Great photo collections, Tish! The last image is breathtaking!
Thank you for sharing with us.
Many thanks, Amy, and all best wishes to you for 2022.
