Half Light : Weekly Photo Challenge

Ballycotton LighthouseThe picture of Ballycotton Lighhouse, in East Cork, was taken in the early afternoon, but rain clouds overhead were gathering, and it looked like evening time.

Sunset over Lake Kariba

The sky above was a sunset photo taken at Lake Kariba, in Zimbabwe, a country that always has spectacular sunrises and sunsets, especially when there are clouds around.

African sunsets always remind me of the song by Toto – I bless the rains down in Africa, and the chorus goes –

I bless the rains down in Africa
I bless the rains down in Africa
(Ah, gonna take the time)
Gonna take some time to do the things we never had

Rains in Africa are sometimes fairly scarce, (not like Ireland and England usually), so they are very welcome when they do arrive.

    I love that song. Recently when we went to Mauritius, they played it on Radio 2 as we travelled to the airport on our way out there. It set the theme for the trip.
