While camping on the edge of the Ngorongoro Crater in Tanzania I decided to wake up early to watch the sunrise.
What I witnessed was nothing short of breathtaking.
Snuggled up inside my hoodie and scarf, I sat alone, mesmerized by the changing horizon before me and watched as the African sky changed from an abyss of black and midnight blue to a bright mix of amethyst and tangerine orange, and as the sun began to rise, spears of light pierced through the clouds.

Wow! What beautiful pictures. Add to that the birds chirping and the sound of the lion roaring, and it would be the perfect morning in wilderness. Thanks for sharing.
