Hi folks

Some of you may remember that image from my archives, back two years ago. Today I decided to posted again, this time in LP format. Hope you like it!

The Bushveld is a sub-tropical woodland ecoregion of Southern Africa named after the term veld. It encompasses most of Limpopo Province and a small part of the North West Province of South Africa, the Central and North-East Districts of Botswana and the Matabeleland South and part of th Matabeleland North provinces of Zimbabwe.
The elevation of this region varies from 750 to 1,400 m and the annual rainfall from 350 mm in the west to 600 mm in parts of the northeast. There are three significant mountain ranges in this region: the Drakensberg escarpment that forms the eastern border of the Bushveld and runs from Tzaneen in the north to Belfast in the south; the Waterberg range that stretches from Mokopane in the east to Thabazimbi in the west; the Soutpansberg range just north of Louis Trichardt. The latter is the northernmost mountain range in South Africa.

Hello George

The panorama framing it is a big plus to the photo
where it shows the animal's habitat and environment,
and on this photo with the light of the background
giving an beautiful atmosphere effect, TFS


Hi George. Great crop. I love the way the grey in the Zebra is balanced with the grey dead tree. The terrain all goes together so perfectly. The clouds are the icing on the cake. A very well organize shot. TFS Trevor
