After 3 cold and cloudy days in the Karoo National Park the sun broke thru late one afternoon illuminating the mountain tops.

The image was created using HDR (High Dynamic Range) software from www.hdrsoft.com. Three images bracketed, 2 stops under and over, then blended. Then post processed in Photoshop, sharpend, foreground lightened a little, some visible roads cloned out, and then run thru noise reduction as HDR tends to create noise.
