Weekly Image #25 – A view from the shower

On our travels through Namibia we spent a couple of nights in Etendeka Mountain Camp, a tented camp in the Etendeka Mountains of Damaraland. Located in the middle of nowhere and with a limited electricity and water supply, the camp has taken measures to reduce its overall consumption. As a result of that the shower was quite a sight. It consisted of a metal bucket that had to be filled with solar-heated water from the tap, then attached to a rope and winched up. The water could then be released through a shower head at the bottom of the bucket. This method was certainly more comfortable than my bucket showers in Ghana, and it was made even more enjoyable by the fact that the shower was outdoors and a circular cutout in the wall offered a stunning view of the surrounding area. Definitely the best view I have ever had while taking a shower.

Taken with the Pentax K3 and DA 35 f/2.4 at f/3.5, 1/60th sec. and ISO 200.
