13th Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Travel
Avenue of the Baobabs by Night

The Avenue of the Baobabs gets pretty quiet and dark after sunset. There are no more tourists around and only a few times an hour a car drives by. Even though the sky was not completely free of clouds, since it was our last night near the Avenue we decided to stay and try a few night shots with the baobabs. During this shot a car drove by and illuminated the avenue, while a shooting star made its appearance on the night sky. A lucky coincidence.
