Serengeti Sunrise

IMG_0939eSymbolically, Acacia trees represent immortality, innocence, initiation of life. Considered sacred by the ancient Hebrews, its wood was said to be used by Moses to build the Ark of Covenant. A thorny tree, it is believed to have been used to make the crown of Christ.

On the Serengeti, where this photo was taken, it shelters the sunrise. A classic icon of the land of the Lion King, it captures the mind’s eye.
