Phil Hill was in Mombasa for a few days after an assignment in West Kenya, and wanted to check out the African coastline as it was his first time seeing the Indian Ocean. He reached Bamburi beach far too early for sunrise and had to sit and bide his time for enough light to photograph. He tells us that it was such a fantastic place to watch the sky go from black to a rich red over the flat and silently still waters. Two men then appeared preparing a boat for the new day, providing him with a great opportunity to catch these guys going about their daily routine before the busy beach crowds rolled in.
