I took this pic on the side of the road leaving Maleme Dam in the Matopos National Park. The colours are good at this time of the year, but evening light always helps!
Lichen on the rocks are very strong coloured this year, I’ve noticed. ‘Praps the good rainy season?
The white flowers are on a wild pear tree – plenty of them around here
Taken just before the turn off to Mshelele Dam.
We didn’t have the time to go there! Didn’t feel like making a 22km bumpy ride on the road either!
For those of you who have never been to the Matopos – its a HUGE granite batholith that has, over time, worn away into massive boulders, some with balancing rocks, precariously waiting to fall! Its only about 30km from Bulawayo on a good road, so its easy to nip out for a braai and for me, the greatest thing about it, is you can get out of your car!!! Children are allowed to run free, climb the huge granite mounds, get in touch with nature. Wikipedia does a better job with the technical details!!!!
