Africa Background Images



This page is designed for video cards running in at least high-color mode, and at least 600 pixels across.

All the images on this page were made by me from pictures I took in Africa. I made them for use on my Africa Pictures page.

All the images on this page are Copyright © 1998 by John Oswalt, but permission is hereby granted for anyone to use them for any non-commercial purpose. If you use an image as the background on your web page, please give me credit, and send me your URL.

I also have a page of Web background images made with a Kodac DC120 digital camera.
