To see the world in a grain of sand
and heaven in a wild flower.

To hold infinity in the palm of your hand
and eternity in an hour

Love those pictures. Makes me feel 'homesick' for KNP.

Anything about Kruger makes me dream, but the sunsets are special.
Here's one of mine, taken on the S125 on a sunset drive

Melting sadness

Here is my contribution of a very green Kruger in January 2014:

This one was taken close to Satara:

Even the Baobab was covered with green leaves:

This is an absolutely amazing topic to follow! It gives me the sense and reassurance that I am not alone in this world when it comes to aching for a little piece of the KNP to fix my withdrawal symptoms.

Love the photos and appreciate the sharing. I am a technophobe of note and would not have a clue how to upload a photograph - :hmz: will have to work on this.

Meandering Mouse - I must compliment your Cloud scene posted yesterday. That makes me think we are truly priviledged to live on this earth and experience this wonderful world.

Loving it all!!

Oh let's time fly
Like a fragile butterfly
On a white and elegant flower
We will be back to Kruger

Today is but a reflection
a dim mirror
of a reality yet veiled.
