Some of the most spectacular images yet come from the great seaports of Africa. In particular, the marvelous black and white satellite shot of Dakar, Senegal resembles the angry mouth of a sea monster ready to devour its prey. Along with Dakar are included are Alexandria, Egypt (above); Algiers, Algeria; Casablanca, Morocco; and Durban, South Africa. I hope you enjoy viewing these as much as I do!
