It was in the morning with 800mm telphoto so the scene is compressed depthwise (foreshortening).

... below the dam wall ....?
KNP is sacred. I am opposed to the modernisation of Kruger and from the depths of my soul long for the Kruger of yesteryear! 1000+km on foot in KNP incl 56 wild trails.200+ nights in the wildernessndloti-indigenous name for serval.

On the S50 shortly before the bird hide, where the first big pools remain except during long drought. Taken Dec 2011 but 2012 was dry. There are those high steep banks on the opposite banks composed of that soft grey crumbly rock.

Okie :clap: :clap: :dance: :dance:

I have never seen those banks you talk off - will take note next time - perhaps whenever I have been there the dam is full.
