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.

Our April 2013 visit - it was special!

SJ you're so right, KTP sunsets are special. Any photo's you'd like to share?

Anne-marie superb photo indeed - what lovely colour textures, could easily be the subject of a painting.
Thanks for sharing.

Beautiful, beautiful, beautiful

I do love pictures of roads. It seems to talk to the meanderer in me. I can never have enough. I find them particularly evocative. Always need to find out what is around the next corner.

Hi RichardJ, thanks for your comment.

Granjan and RolfB lovely photos, thanks for sharing. The tented camps are special aren't they. We've just come back from a few nights at Urikaruus, wher we enjoyed full moon. Spectacular is how I describe it. Worth the money spent.
