Dawn in the Rift Valley


This photo was taken by Dhruv Kazi, a MSc student in the Social Policy Department. This photo was taken at Lake Manyara, Kenya.

'The photograph captures the local fishermen silhouetted against the waters of Lake Manyara while the rift valley escarpment forms a subtle yet spectacular backdrop. The most captivating part of the photograph is the water hyacinth in the foreground. The photo is a reminder of one of the biggest threats to the waters of the rift valley lakes that has only recently been brought under control with concerted domestic and international efforts. The photograph highlights how so many lives depend on this ecosystem - and how fragile it really is.'
