In most post-apocalyptic films when the camera pans down the abandoned streets of New York or Tokyo, long after people have disappeared and the buildings have fallen into disrepair, we see nature again thriving. Trees and plants take hold in the sidewalks and wild animals like deer, bears, and lions stalk the ruins left behind by humans.

A photographer has shared his stunning gallery of African sunrises and sunsets. Paul Goldstein says he has spent years trying to photograph the perfect beginning and ending of the Masai Mara day.

Wimbledon-based Paul explains: “Of all the thousands of images I have taken during sunrise and sunset around the world, 90% of them have been in two Mara Conservancies in Kenya – Olare and Mara North.

Goldstein guides photographic safaris and expeditions for Exodus and is co-owner of the number one rated Kicheche Camps in Kenya.
