Kgalagadi landscapes, sunrises/sunsets and night pics

Unread postby Tony T » Fri May 10, 2013 4:46 pm

I guess we all go to KTP because we love nature and the preservation it. Animals, birds are the most popular that we snap or record on video but I find, when things are "quiet", I am drawn by the vastness of the landscape or the spectacular sunrise or sunset.
I'd like to share some of my special moments in KTP. Please share yours too.
And what I like about landscape pics is that even 'point and shoot' cameras work well, in some cases even better.

:clap: :clap: :clap: :clap: some gems you all have!!!

Landscapes are the one thing I don't have much of.........not that landscapes don't "talk" to me, just something I'm not real good at taking photos of.

This was a sandstorm before the rainstorm...........
