Photographer's Note

Our local guides had set themselves up as extras in the highest theater, so I take the moment to photograph them against the sun in a kind of silhouette. The Margherita Peak is the third highest mountain in Africa at 5,109 m and the highest in Uganda. The peak is located on the border between Uganda and the Democratic Republic of the Congo in the Rwenzori, which is also known as mountains of the moon. At the same time the Rwenzori is the highest mountain range in Africa, while the higher Kilimanjaro and Mount Kenya are single mountains (volcanoes).
