Sunrise at the Richtersberg Camp site on the Orange River - all the camp sites are very basic, visitors must carry their own water and provisions.
Although I was a passenger, I know what a thrill it is to drive these roads.
I'm guessing that this is a lizard ... gorgeous colours hey ... if you look carefully you can see that it's still shedding its skin.
This viewpoint took my breath away.
Sentkannetjie - Crassula columnaris.
I almost missed these tiny well camouflaged plants.
Spectacular rock formations abound.
What can I say?
Helskloof - the sides of a mountain covered with Pearson's Aloe (Aloe pearsonii) - the only place in the world where this plant grows in such density.
Three Black Crows in one of the rare trees ... they were quite far away and I struggled to get a decent shot of individuals:
A lousy photo I know but, I like the way some of the feathers of the bird are sticking out equally around it's body ... it's easy to see why Crows are associated with witches and the Underworld.
I'm hoping that some of my artistic Friends here will be able to sharpen it up and/or incorporate it into an artwork ... :)
