Monday Morning Photo – Sunrise on Lake Awassa, Ethiopia

Sunrise on Lake Awassa, Ethiopia. The southernmost of Ethiopia's Rift Valley Lakes.

The scene from this week’s image has likely been a constant for centuries. As dawn breaks on Ethiopia’s southernmost Rift Valley lake, a pair of fishermen paddle their boat to a preferred spot to drop lines or a net. Their small vessel causes a minor wake, while the pink hues of the morning light are reflected on the calmer majority of the lake’s surface.

    Great photo. It is hard to believe that such calm and beauty can coexist so close to such a violent world. How are you guys doing?

    This photo is gorgeous. Sunrises (and sets) put me at such peace.
