[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I was hiking at the Cederberg Mts, enjoying the rich fynbos flora. Suddenly I saw a whole slope dominated by Zygophyllum foetidum. I realyzed that this is a north facing slope, hotter that the opposite slope in the southern hemisphere and that was the reason for the occurance of this arid plant.
