Karoo scene at the foothills of the Zuurberg

The Karoo is a hauntingly beautiful place.  A lot of people may find it boring but most see a beauty that is often described differently by every person.  Wide open spaces with blue skies above, a couple of sheep grazing on the sparse green grass around a wind pump filled cement dam, late winter aloes in bloom with a Karoo koppie in the background, farm workers' children playing in the dust close to a flat roof worker's house, somebody walking down a dirt road in the middle of nowhere and so I can go on.  The scene in the picture was taken in the Karoo just north of the Zuurberg Pass. In the background is the 150 year old Ann's Villa.

  1. I find it a beautiful place... the sky always seems so much higher above my head out there, with space to breathe :-)
