A sunset in Africa

One of the shots I have been wanting to get for the longest time! This is it, the African sun setting behind a fanned out tree. I have tried to work on steadying my hand and body as much was possible while taking pictures out of moving vehicles, and I'm glad that I have practiced for this picture. I was in a moving van a rugged road heading to Zimbabwe when the sun started to set into the night. All my prepping for steady camera holding while in cars and vans over the years payed off with this shot.
