Standing Strong by hougaard Standing Strong by hougaard
This image is very 'South Africa'. Taken on Calitzdorp's side of the Swartberg mountains close to where the pass comes down.

It's amazing that there w old aloes didn't sway the least bit in a 15 second exposure in strong wind. Unluckily there was a 8ft game fence through which I had to shoot, so composition wasn't optimal and it was about 5 degrees in a strong wind.

However, i actually think it would be better if the bottom half was cropped out, because the top is beautiful and the bottom a bit bright.

I love the mountain/sky/trees combo at the very right hand top. It's just perfect

in my opinion the foreground is too bright, infact i can see the transition between the sky and the ground in the mountain on the left, which is brighter at the bottom.
Anyway it's a very very nice image.

What's the name of that succulent growing like a tree? Is that some kind of aloe plant?
