…And on to Tankwa Karoo!

A wide and open expanse of land situated between the Cederberg Mountain Range and the Roggeveld Mountains.  The landscape is vast and fascinating, desolate and yet at the same time peaceful.

The highlight for me was watching the incredible colours of the sunset before star-gazing for hours on end at one of the most clear and spectacular night skies I have seen.  Revealing all the stars and milky way the darkness has to offer without city lights or smog filled air to ruin the show.

Here I found space, solitude and tranquility.  Oh with the exception of Afrikaburn and the rising of Tanka Town for one week…but that is a different story!

Weekly Photo Challenge: Up!

I captured these images on Sunday afternoon from up above the clouds so high.   Not only was I physically high up in the sky but my emotions were also up at the top of the happiness scale after a wonderful weekend celebrating my birthday in Tasmania.  So yes indeed my age also went UP too!

It was a weekend of double celebrations with the very exciting news that the next destination on my journey is now official and I have my visa for South Africa.  So the next time I take to the skies to fly up high I will be on my way to Cape Town to start a completely new adventure.
