There was a nice sky outside the house last night:

Went out this evening for a quick wander to the end of the street.  There's a little bit of a ridge with a path along the top where you can look over towards Liverpool, which is about 15 miles away.  Saw this.

So I zoomed in a bit on the little red lne in the middle...

And realised I was actually looking at Giraffes wandering majestically across the Serengeti.....

 

It's amazing what you can see from here...  :biggrin:

Is there a drought in the Serengeti? Those giraffes look a bit malnourished - you can see their skeletons.

 

Nice picture.

My new Panasonic TZ200.  24-360 zoom.  I'm very pleased with it.

Thank you. Bit blurry, but it was hand held on a long zoom.  Main thing is that it proves that as well as the Isle of Man, All of Wales, The Himalayas and parts of Patagonia.. (All according to the locals..)  From Billinge you can also see the Serengeti.  It's very clear today so I'll have a look later and see whether the Pyramids are silhouetted against the evening sky...  :laugh:

Any chance of the Taj Mahal Col ? I've always admired that.
