Lightning over South Africa
Lightning as we flew over South Africa. Every day I see new and amazing things up here! Of interest is the number of lightning storms in just a 2 second exposure.

South Africa for Eddie
Just called the incredible Eddie Izzard – 24 marathons in 24 days in South Africa…3 more to go, amazing!
Eddie ran from right of to left for Sport Relief (ending in Cape Town) so he might appreciate this view! He flies to Jo’berg and Pretoria tomorrow for the final three marathons.
