I thought do you have a favourite place that you always visit and pic's of how it changes depending on the time of day, year or if there was rain or not.

Well I have such a place. This is part of Mapungubwe and not part of (long story). It lies within the fences of the park so I'm taking liberty although it's not really part of the park YET (like I said long story).

This is the Great grey greasy Limpopo the trees across the river are in Botswana.

Sun set in summer with good rain.

Winter, dry season.

Winter after a good rain summer.

Image
Same as the one above just towards the east.

Again after rains.
