Look how beautiful the Kalahari landscape is, even the mighty lion looks small....what a impressive acacia!

Excellent picture!

Thanks for sharing!

Beautiful composition Jan! ( although I would "photoshop" the little part of the tree, far left in the picture, out of the picture) This is a real postcard!

Lovely orange colour Goronta, thanks for sharing!

Best regards,
