Sky Watch Friday- Pictures from South Africa

It is now nearly two weeks since I came back from South Africa and yet mentally I am still there! So for the Sky Watch Friday what else to post but more pictures from South Africa.

Sabi River Sun was such a pretty property with 18 hole golf course and Sabi river nearby. But we stayed there one night, almost as a transit to Nelspruit Airport. So I could hardly explore anything!

I loved the panorama through which the roads go both in the Limpopo and Mpumalanga region. Such empty roads in itself are a feast to the eyes if you live in India! Nelspruit is the airport that serves Kruger National Park and the surrounding areas.

You have believe me when I say that I clicked this picture from a moving vehicle and it was easily moving between 80-100 kilometers per hour. While moving at that speed I quickly realized that with my SLR I was struggling to keep anything in focus whereas it was easier to focus using the cell phone. So all the pictures that I posted today are clicked from my cell phone.

With a moving vehicle you also need to start reacting to a place before you approach it. Otherwise by the time you reach the spot has vanished. I learned this after many missed opportunities. I wonder if there are treks in the region?
