Problems? Your computer may refuse to show anything other than an empty box. If so, and you are using Windows 7 as the webmaster does, fixing the problem is most simple. Print the image you will come to here & follow the few instructions. In other browsers I presume that you would follow the same approach i.e. get to the 'Java' program on your computer & fix the security level.

Of course you do need to install 'Java' to be able to see it. Easily done! It installs quickly & it is free. Just click on 'Free Java Download' here.

This striking image was taken by photographer Wolfgang Drung in Mali in West Africa. When this page was first created, back in 2000, I found the original first on a Russian 'photo critique' website on which Wolfgang had posted a number of his wonderful images. And then I found his images on an English language critique site also. To me his image is simply superb!

In 2009, as this site must move to a new location, you can see a prize winning example of Wolfgang's work here & many more of his images are here. Including, at that second link, the image used above..

There was, of course, no 'mirage' in the original image. But the 'Lake Applet' & desert images go well together particularly so with this astounding image. Thank you so much, Wolfgang, for granting permission for use here.
