Karoo Park - Fire in the Sky

Unread postby JimS » Sun Jul 19, 2015 10:34 am

The camp at Karoo National Park must have one of the most spectacular views of any SanParks camp. Sitting on the patio of a chalet both sunrise and sunsets light up the landscape, and with luck turns the sky to fire.

Thank you all for your extremely kind comments. My wife and myself were on our way home to JHB after photographing the wildflowers on the West Coast. We stopped for three nights at the Karoo Park, and the first two days were dark, grey, and cold. On the last day the sky cleared in the afternoon and we had this incredible sunset. Just like wildlife photography, the luck of being in the right place at the right time.

I look at some of the amazing wildlife images posted by people who probably spend only a few weeks a year in SanParks, and wonder what photographs could they produce if they could spend months in the Parks like some of the professional wildlife photographers.

Jim, we see some wonderful talent on the forum and your picture is an example of how very fortunate we are.

It would be nice if you could post some of your flowers, if that is your specialty.
