There are some things in life that are so beautiful they often leave us speechless and moved to tears. For me, watching sunset along the Baobab Avenue in Madagascar is one of them. The Avenue du Baobab in Western Madagascar might be one of the most touristy spots in the country, but its natural beauty is hard to resist.
As we gathered along the row of unique-looking baobab trees, we watched in silence as the giant orange yolk bathe the sandy-brown desert in a blanket of gold. The colors shimmered and dazzled, changing from bright vermillion to mandarin orange and slowly wispy gold before the sun disappeared beyond the horizon. It took place in a matter of minutes but to see the movement of the sun and the transformation of light before us was enough to take our breathe away. Here are some photos we shot during sunset, hope you can feel the magic as much as we did.
Behind the scenes: these images were shot by my partner in crime, Alberto Molero.
