Landscapes

Along the Penhalonga Rd…

We chose to take the scenic route to Mutare from Juliasdale! This pic (below) was taken soon after we turned off onto the Penhalonga Rd.

Thanks – we were very lucky to get these pics – we were up in the Eastern Highlands for several weeks and had a few pretty dismal days where it rained and the mist hung low! Not good for photography. This day was our โ€œoffโ€ day and luckily for us it was lovely

Lovely stuff Frankie. It’s like I’m there ๐Ÿ™‚

Thanks – I thought of you several times when I came across some odd looking plant! Probably something awfully common! The vegetation is very different to what Iโ€™m used to here in Mat’land

Thank you, Frankie – just gorgeous! I lived in Umtali from 1964 – 73 and it will always have a very special place in my heart.

Its the first time Ive ever been here – we went to Chimanimani three years ago – also when we were working up this end of the country and it made me want to come back! Mutare has grown, according to people who used to live there. Thank you for your visit and comment

Oh! My goodness you have really captured the beauty of the eastern highlands.
I was born in “Umtali” & my father bought land near the Pungwe Gorge (Brackenridge) & built a beautiful country cottage there near the water. We drove out there so many times so I almost know that road backwards! Beautiful. Thank you. Valerie

What a lovely selection – the one with the house and hills my best. Oh the dusty road…sigh . The thin tar one….sigh xx

The road had its challenges! Its quite wet there and as a result the potholes form very easily – I LOVE the one with the tree!

Do you share your camera settings?

frankiekay - 27. Jul, 2016 - Reply

I think they are embedded in the pics – let me know which one you are interested in and I can post it. I do some post shooting tweeking – dont know if that shows on the settings

I like your mid-tones, with sky not being blown out. I live at 6200 ft. And have trouble with blown out skies.
