This was my view from atop the Congo River barge in 1985. It may seem unbelievable, but the sunset was actually this golden color. I did not even remember taking this picture until I returned home and saw the developed film... this remains one of my favorite photos even though the quality of the image (35mm transparency, slightly faded) isn't up to today's digital standards.

Hi Kevin, this is an attractive shot from a little-known part of the world, even more interesting for being 25 years old. Perhaps the silhouettes could have been darker and sharper, but otherwise it's a great photo.

Technically this scanned image leaves a lot to be desired for, but what a view. I can understand why this is one of your favourite photos. Golden brown colours, perfect silhouettes...
On my world map the Congo river makes the most fascinating journey, I'm waiting for reality to follow.
