I will post a number of photos of the same angles at other spots in Mapungubwe in their respective threads, that will also show the change over the last year and a half.

I do believe that you will have to continue with this valuable study ... you will have to return at least once a year to take photos! :wink:

As if you need convincing to do that…. :twisted: :lol:
I’ve been looking forward to these….this is really great shot JB. :clap:
It was still quite dry in the time we were there, looking at your December photos I think we need to visit this park in the wet season as well….it is absolutely beautiful! 8)
