"UHURU" The summit of Mount Kilimanjaro, known as Uhuru Point, receives the last rays of light. This image was captured in October, 2010 towards the end of the dry season when fresh snow is rarely seen and the famous glaciers are fully exposed. New studies suggest that deforestation on the coastal side of the mountain is having a devastating effect on ice loss. Without the protective forests, the humid air dries and fails to redeposit moisture as the coastal air pushes on.
