It was my first time to set foot on Africa. We stayed in a hotel right next to the South
Atlantic Ocean at the city of Swakopmund, Namibia. The sun was setting and I noted the amazing sun in the distant horizon embraced by the "clear" sky. I took several pictures of the setting sun during the last few seconds before it was completely below the horizon. I hope I was able to capture the "green flash" in those photos. Sure I did when I zone in to view the sun. There was also a refraction ( halo?? ) of the sun just above it!! This is amazing.
