To me the Karoo is big sky country and the sky makes for a big part of any photograph taken in the area. The night skies are the most impressive you will see anywhere with the Milky Way stretching from horizon to horizon in all its glory, showing just why its called such. In between the blue sky days and the starry nights is my favourite time of the day. The time when the sun sets in a fiery ball of fire over the horizon. A time of painted skies. A time of peace and silence when the day time animals get ready to go to sleep and the nocturnal animals wake up. A time for contemplation.
