Xaga Island Double Sunset

Two of my favourite pictures from our midwinter safari to Namibia and Botswana were of the same sunset.  We were camping out in the Okavango panhandle on Xaga Island and had gone out for a beautiful sunset walk.  As the sun dropped rapidly down I took pictures looking west and then east – catching both the sunset colours and the beautiful violet light in the belt of Venus.

I’ve fitted the two pictures together and then mirrored them in this image.
