Mount Kilimanjaro Under the Milky Way

It's long been on my Bucket List to climb one of the "Seven Summits, the highest peaks in the 7 continents." Normally, there would be swathes of tourists and would-be climbers to this world-famous mountain. However, the Covid-19 pandemic has offered us the rare opportunity to experience this trek almost all to ourselves.

Our guide told us that there would be hundreds of groups and tents lined up along campsites in the park. We saw only 2 other groups in this camp on our second day. This shot was taken about an hour and a half after sunset in Shirai I camp. I'm glad I brought my superwide angle lens for this shot - Sunrise and Sunsets here seem subdued and I just couldn't get good shots because of so-so lighting. At night, however, is a different story. The lack of light pollution means the Milky Way is visible to the naked eye.
