Best Ambiance Lighting – The Beer Chandelier, at Planet Baobab, Botswana
Best Ambiance Lighting Ever! I love The Beer Chandelier!
There’s all sorts of lighting we’ve used during our lifetimes to create that special atmosphere.
That could range from a candle lit dinner, using dimmer lights in our home, or possibly the extreme glare from fluorescent lighting in the average 7/11 store, where you need sunglasses as soon as one walks in the front door.
But I found the Best Ambiance Lighting EVER! The Beer Chandelier.
This photo was taken at the Planet Baobab Camp near the Okavango Delta in Botswana. If you’re around that part of the world, drop in and have a drink at the bar there. Actually, their accommodation is also surreal, and it’s worth spending a night or two there on the way to/from the Okavango Delta.
Just think of the huge amount of work that went into this amazing piece of lighting. And that’s just drinking the beer!
However, there was an unexpected bonus from taking this shot. At the end of 2008, I entered the Wanderlust Magazine Offbeat Travel Photo Competition with this photo.
They emailed me recently to say that this photo will be appearing in their publication of Weird World.
So that means even my dodgy travel photography is strangely being noticed!
