For this week’s post I have decided to share 20 landscape images that stand out for their sheer beauty. These images should give you a good feeling of the vistas of Londolozi – the Sand River, rocky koppies, dramatic sunsets, sunrises, night skies and thunderstorms…
Sometimes simply taking an image of a landscape, with or without wildlife, can evoke many feelings and special reminders of a place and time. Enjoy the selection below.
