[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Here a photo from Blyde River Canyon in Mpumalanga. The Canyon is considered to be one of the larger in the World. A fantastic scenery and nature. In the back you can see the "three rondavelds" named after the traditional Xhosa huts.

The lizard is a quite rare Flat Dvarf Lizard living in the Canyon.

Hallo Stefan
This actually looks to good to be true. It is a beautiful image, with an artistic approach, which also let the imagination run wild. The colours of nature in this image is super. An image with lots of magnetism to it. Great moment captured indeed! Thanks for sharing. Best regards.

Hi Stefan,
This isn't quite the usual lizard photo. It looks like the lizard is checking out the great scenery. I like it, well done.

Perfect picture of a Green Agama looking above the vast Blyde River Canyon with incredible contrast/colors and depth of field Stefan! Bravo!

This is really great capture of a Platysaurus orientalis (Sekukhune Flat Lizard) belonging to the family Cordylidae - not Agamidae or agamas!- which lives only a small part of S Africa Stefan. Beside of this, it is also great scenery too.
Well done! TFS this beauty!

Hello Stefan,
Beautiful photo of this lizard in an amazing beautiful landscape. Fantastic depth of field and a very good composition. Very beautiful colours.

Hello Stefan,
I have to confess that I do not like these pictures of animals with "as much open space ".... But this particular makes my start a round of applause!.... Congratulations! ... great shot, excellent depth and a wonderful environment.
Regards, TFS

Hej Stefan,

Very nice picture indeed, good composition with the lizard underneath (but overlooking ;) ) the rondavels. I am surprised this is the only picture from the Blyde River Canyon on TN!

Beautiful lizard, you were lucky to see it!

Thanks for sharing,
