Walking past the winter thorn

The winter thorn (acacia albida) is a striking feature of the Malawian lakeshore around Salima, and on the Salima Escarpment. This photograph was taken near Salima, where some of the best and largest trees, treasured by the local communitity for their shade, were needlessly destroyed by subsequent road-widening.
