It is sad, but there is a flip side, the spots don't get commercial, which provides a wealth of opportunity to photographers.

John those are real stunners, you're really going to miss those places when you move over here - although I suspect we may be able to find other attractions for you - much cooler ones though! :-)

Thanks John, I'm sure I will miss our temperature, but as you say, the UK also has some stunning opportunities. If you have time, check out my landscape post in the critique forum. I'm sure the UK offers many such opportunities.

Lovely shots John :-). Your first pic has inspired me to search back through my old film negs for some similar crystal water shots I have from South Australia.

I'm planning to get over to South Africa later this year and can't wait to snap the scenery and the wildlife. But your Lake Malawi story might have me looking over my shoulder while I'm there.

Hi Ollie Oz, thanks for the comments. Unfortunately I think I may have mislead you. The first shot was taken in Lake Malawi and the entire time I visited Malawi I felt perfectly safe. The 4th shot was taken in South Africa in a very rural area in the Eastern Cape that used to be part of the homelands in the apartheid era. It is only these rural areas near townships that there is any danger. Otherwise I hope you have a great trip. If possible, be sure to visit the Western Cape winelands, the Kruger Park, the Garden Route villages and if you feel like roughing it, the Transkei coast.

Very nice photos John. My fav would be#4, the stillness of the water allowing the nice reflections and the colors are great.

Actually Lake Malawi is very young, it's part of East Africa's Great Rift Valley... and propably in some day forms part of sea between East Africa and rest of continent.

That whole area is really worth of closer checking in here.

Oh, I am afraid my words 'as old as the continent itself' were referring to the rocks in the foreground, not the lake. However, thanks for the feedback, E.T
