Cumulonimbus formation over region of Kano, Nigeria, on winter, at 11,900 meters.

Once serving as part of the floor for a much larger Lake Chad, the area now known as the Bodele Depression, located at the southern edge of the Sahara Desert in north central Africa, is slowly being transformed into a desert landscape. In the mid-1960s, Lake Chad was about the size of Lake Erie. But persistent drought conditions coupled with increased demand for freshwater for irrigation have reduced Lake Chad to about 5 percent of its former size. As the waters receded, the silts and sediments resting on the lakebed were left to dry in the scorching African sun. The small grains of the silty sand are easily swept up by the strong wind gusts that occasionally blow over the region. Once heaved aloft, the Bodele dust can be carried for hundreds or even thousands of kilometers.

 

The remnants of Lake Chad appear as the olive-green feature set amid the tan and light brown hues of the surrounding landscape where the countries of Chad, Niger, Nigeria, and Cameroon all share borders. The Bodele Depression was the source of some very impressive dust storms that swept over West Africa and the Cape Verde Islands in early February.

These true-color images were acquired by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on February 7, and February 11, 2004. Numerous fires are shown as red dots in the February 7 images.

Questa foto, scattata nel 1993 con una Canon FTB manuale analogica 35mm, è stata stampata e poi rifotografata con una Reflex Digitale Nikon D90. I dati Exif riportati si riferiscono a quest'ultimo scatto e non a quello originale, pertanto non sono veritieri.

 

This picture, taken in 1993 with a Canon FTB 35mm film manual, was printed and then re-photographed with a Nikon D90 digital SLR. The Exif data reported refer to the latter shot and not the original, so are not true.

Since 2009 over 50,000 people have been killed as a result of the terrorist group Boko Haram. They were created in Nigeria but branched out into the neighboring countries 2014 and escalted the conflict drastically. However in 2015 a coalition force drove them back, even though they're still active, they're not nearly as strong as they once were.

 

Shown here are two Nigerian soldier with their FN Fals charging a Boko Haram terrorist.

All camoflauge are painted by me, Fals are painted (I really lke the look of them now) and RPK is moded and painted by me.
