    These photos are quite fabulous! I particularly like them because they are African landscapes. I cannot wait to go to Africa and see them for myself. You are lucky to have seen them for yourself.

  3. I love mountains! I can sit all day and watch them. The more you sit, the more refined your seeing becomes.

    One day I may get to see Mount Everest, from some nice vantage point. But first Uluru, which is more a rock than a mountain, but it’s a bloody big rock!

    Mountains are so beautiful I could stare at them forever. Unfortunately because I live in Florida, the only time I see mountains is when I read blogs like yours, so I thank you for that. ;)

    • Oooh, you’re welcome, Bob!
      You know, the first time I visited Florida I was surprised how flat it was. It’s one thing to know that it’s flat, quite a whole other thing to see it.
      I was always a water person but on this trip, I saw some spectacular mountains and was able to go really high up. Made me really learn to appreciate them.
      Thanks for the visit.
