[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Loskop Dam Nature Reserve - Mpumalanga, South Africa The Loskop Dam Nature Reserve covers an area of 148 square km and lies around the massive Loskop Dam on the Olifants River, 55km north of Middelburg in Mpumalanga. The Dam has created a natural floodplain and the scenic valley has been restocked with animals once indigenous to the area. These include the eland and other species of antelope, giraffe, zebra, wildebeest & white rhino. The dam wall was built in the 1930's across the Olifants River gorge, and was raised again in the 1970's. The dam is approximately 30km long, which makes it the longest dam in the Southern Hemisphere.

Hello George,
Sometimes people are in the right place at the right time. The colours are gorgeous, at the water and in the air. Very good choice of composition.
