This week's topic for our picture hunt is Look up/Look down. This really had me thinking for a while till I realised the way I should go. So here is my interpretation of Kate's words.
I searched through old photographs taken whilst driving round the Panorama Route, Mpumulunga, South Africa when we lived in nearby Hazyview. To give a brief explanation much of that part of South Africa is either Highveld or Lowveld and usually there is an easy drive down between the two. But here the cooler Highveld towers above the much hotter and drier Lowveld below where we lived. The Panorama Route took in many lovely sites like Bourke's Luck Potholes, Pilgrim's Rest and God's Window. That is where the first picture was taken.
Here we are looking east over vast forests owned and maintained by the Forestry Commission and beyond that across the town of the aptly named Hazyview and towards the Kruger National Park and eventually towards Mozambique. I like to think this photographs shows both looking up at the clouds whose shadows make dark blotches on the forests below where your eye is drawn to look down. We loved being up there as it was a way to escape the extreme heat of the Lowveld below.
This next picture I took of Rosie's Pan where I think it shows both looking up and down. The clouds above are reflected in the water below.
Here a male Kudu is standing above the water with his reflection down below.
I have more pictures 'looking up' than looking down so here is one last one of storm clouds building up over Naledi Dam as the sun was setting.
That's it for this week. Thanks Kate for keeping us going with your weekly picture hunt. Now off to see how everyone else has interpreted the prompt for this week.
