Lost in Time: An Ancient Forest. Avenue du Baobab, Morandava, Madagascar. Photo and caption by Ken Thorne.

Near the city of Morondava, on the West coast of Madagascar lies an ancient forest of Baobab trees. Unique to Madagascar, the endemic species is sacred to the Malagasy people, and rightly so. Walking amongst these giants is like nothing else on this planet. Some of the trees here are over a thousand years old. It is a spiritual place, almost magical.
