[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Ngorongoro crater (techically a caldera) is the remnant of a volcano the size of Mt. Kilamanjaro that imploded instead of erupting two million years ago. Today, Ngorongoro is a flat plain twelve miles across surrounded by an unbroken circular wall two thousand feet high. The salt-whitened shores of Lake Magadi on the floor of Ngorongoro provide a perfect habitiat for thousands of flamingoes. The clouds hovering along the top edge of the crater create an amazing illusion, which I hope I've captured in this photo.

Hi Eleanor, I was just talking to a friend about where flamingos live in the natural world since we only have them living in zoos here. Nicely shown with the plain and the caldera walls. Thanks for sharing :-)
