Sunrise on the Omo River

Sunrise on the Omo River, originally uploaded by CharlesFred.

It is 07.41 in the morning and the mist is still in the Omo River valley, the brown waters of the river are streaming past from the mountains of western Ethiopia down to their destination in Lake Turkana in Kenya. The sun is peeping through and throwing its light on the western bank of the river, before it burns away the clouds and sets us up for a hot, bright sunny day, during which we will climb to the top of the mountains on the eastern shore to meet the first people we will have seen for three days, apart from ourselves.
