In the photographer's words: "After a day of rain and night of snow on our long traverse around Kilimanjaro, I awoke early and disgruntled at the prospect of trading my warm sleeping bag for the soggy wet and icy cold outside.  Then this sight took my breath away.  It only lasted a few minutes and soon after the sun rose it was again enveloped in clouds.  These extremes of colors and contrast, light, and shadow, dread and excitement are to me Africa."
