The cold front from the Cape hit the Karoo just as I arrived at Camdeboo National Park. I had just two days in this little protected area near Graaff-Reinet. Sometimes poor weather can add mood to a photograph, but mostly it simply makes everything dull and grey.
I’ve been to Camdeboo a few times, and the views of the Karoo are some of the best. Although everyone goes to the Valley of Desolation, another really good viewpoint is at the end of the Kuduskloof 4×4 trail. Here I watched a barrage of dark clouds roll in across the vlaktes of the Karoo…an awesome sight. As impressive was the wind as it roared around the koppie on which I was standing. Whooooaaarrr!
