Riding from Entebbe to Kampala just after sunrise. The fist part in the morning haze was without the permanent traffic congestion that makes Kampala infamous to ride.

Hello Gerrit ,
This is a great composition , with the superb effect of the morning mist in the far . The bikes are very well placed at a focal point .
Thanks for the share , of this (it seems to be for me) typical african road .

Bonjour, cher ami Gerrit,
Mission réussie pour cette composition. L'image parle d'elle-même. Un choix de cadrage des plus judicieux.
La lumière est parfaite.
Admiration et intérêt manifeste.

Hello Gerrit - You have produced a very good shot here, the quality of this early morning African scene is so evocative and well managed, I feel as if I am travelling along the road with the other commuters. Really good! Warm regards rosemary

This must be such an interesting place to visit. Your picture shows a steep road taking the eye to the lovely misty BG. A super image.
Kind Regards, Ann

I like the the POV that you chose, it really gives the feeling of being on a bike. You also did a nice job of capturing the light on the morning haze. Your note is interesting, I'd sure hate to see this road when it is busy. It looks challenging enough early in the day.
Gezondheid & Joy, Pat

This may be a rather ordinary suburban highway, but this perspective with the two long slopes, and the mist and mild light of early morning gives the view a rare beauty. This is the kind of picture that gives me an urge to go on another journey - although not necessarily by bike and not necessarily at this early hour. It's an enchanting photo anyway.

Leuk om je weer eens tegen te komen,prachtig beeld van een het begin van een tropische dag,zoals ik zo vaak heb mogen zien in bv Indonesie,ik kan de frisse ochtendgeuren al ruiken....
wat kijk je bezorgd op je introfoto ;=]]

wow, I dont think we get to see many photos of Uganda on TE! so this is a real treat, as are the other photos in your gallery.
interesting to see all the trees and flora in the city, we don't really have that in north american cities on major streets like this.
I'd love to check out the Joma Supermarket :)
fun shot, really glad you posted it and i wonder what your experience was like there!
