  1. I'm glad you captured it much better than I did, this one could go into any travel magazine, stunning! Did you ever go down that long road to Tsingy?

    By the way, I believe I recognize those men, are they the people selling baobab wooden sculptures?

  2. Fantastic shot Wendy. I absolutely love silhouette photography and you truly did justice in comprehending or exposing size of these gorgeous trees. The people in the shot makes it believable.

    In Namibia we have the Adansonia digitata ... and we belief if you pick one of its flowers (not that it would be easy to climb the 30 meters to reach it), a lion will catch and eat you within a day. Funny stuff.

    Great shot. Love it.

''Adansonia grandidieri'', sometimes known as Grandidier's baobab, is the biggest and most famous of Madagascar's six species of baobabs. This imposing and unusual tree is endemic to the island of Madagascar, where it is an endangered species threatened by the encroachment of agricultural land.
