It features a small water body &lots of trees. Section 1 is completely fenced so it is relatively safe. There are basic amenities on site; Park benches, restrooms and parking space.

Week 11 - Landscape Reflection

Find a way to show your landscape/natural beauty in reflection. The mirror world revealed. Went on a small walk to a water body/dam near home, this is Lower Kabete near Peponi school. Probably could have been more interesting later in the day.

Week 7 - Portrait: Faceless

Tell a story without showing the face, pretty hard challenge this one. This was taken at the Waterfalls Inn in Tigoni, decent place to visit if you can overlook the KES 300 charge. There is a nice waterfall and picnic area. The place seems to be past its glory days as the restaurant wasn't open and some of the structures seem quite dated, however if you can overlook that you will be greeted by awesome views of team farms and Nairobi city in the distance.

The interesting thing about this shot is I was just about to leave, then as I sat waiting for my transport to arrive this couple just happened to be at the right place, had I not looked back I would have missed this shot. Goes to show, always look behind you there may just be a great shot there. C&C welcome.
