: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...........

I love the Gemsbok looking back.

Great images all...... wish I was there now !

Thought I would share some images of the FATA MORGANA we witnessed one year on the lower dune road. What is a Fata Morgana ?

"A Fata Morgana is an unusual and complex form of superior mirage that is seen in a narrow band right above the horizon. It is an Italian phrase derived from the vulgar Latin for "fairy" and the Arthurian sorceress Morgan le Fay, from a belief that these mirages, often seen in the Strait of Messina, were fairy castles in the air or false land created by her witchcraft to lure sailors to their death. Although the term Fata Morgana is sometimes incorrectly applied to other, more common kinds of mirages, the true Fata Morgana is not the same as an ordinary superior mirage, nor is it the same as an inferior mirage".

I have posted them before, but for those who haven't seen, here they are again:
