Tankwa Karoo

First morning of our third time in the Karoo. Strijdom had spotted an opportunity in a ridge of angular bright orange rocks contrasting with the surrounding flat area consisting of much darker smaller rocks and stones that could effectively serve as canvas. We had visited the site the previous late afternoon to confirm and plan the shoot, but in the dark next morning before sunrise we struggled initially to find the exact spot again and it required some driving and walking back and forth to locate it. A cold wind was blowing, unexpected this time of year, but we were rewarded with the first sunlight from the east beautifully highlighting the orange of both the grid of twenty five rocks and the ridge behind from which these had been taken – exactly as Strijdom had foreseen and intended.
