That morning, we left early for a long drive back to Kampala. As we came out of a valley, sunlight came in from the right, and we looked to the source of the light. Sunrays filtered through early morning fog hanging in the valley, and we saw a play of light and shadow with the fog, the trees, and the sun. We just had to stop and watch the spectacle before driving on. For the next several hours, we were glued to the landscape and the sunlight playing with it.
While on a boat tour on the Victoria Nile, the skies rapidly turned from a bright blue to a menacing grey. While our boat and direct surroundings were still in the sunlight, we saw immensely grey clouds coming in from a distance. Together with the sunlight reflected on the small islets of grass in the Nile, the light conditions turned amazing and we just could not stop looking at the scenery and the light. Minutes after this picture was taken, the clouds caught up with us and rained down mercilessly.
On one of our early morning game drives, we saw the sky colouring yellow, orange and purple, and then saw the sun tearing itself loose from the horizon. It soon started to lighten our surroundings, and when later clouds started rolling in, the filtering of the sunrays through the clouds was no less spectacular and made the picture of the beautiful plains complete. Also driving around the country and walking in the forests made us see some fine, delicate lighting conditions.
