Roy Mangersnes - Fire in the desert

Today is the Norwegian Constitution Day, 17th of May. What better way to celebrate then with a bang! The picture on the other hand is not from Norway but from one of my trips to Botswana. It shows the dynamics of the Kalahari desert as bush fires are washed out by incoming rain, new ones are started by lightning striking nearby.

Location: Kalahari, Botswana
