The Best landscape photographs are mostly taken in the so called 'golden hour' around sunset and sunrise, but every so often the skies pull out their absolute best cards and create scenes like these in the early afternoon. Such was the case on this March afternoon on the Northern rim of the Fish River Canyon.

Love those little thunderstorms! This kind of weather is my favorite to photograph. A hot afternoon with a few bubbling storms roaming and waiting to explode. And what a surreal landscape to see them in! Great stuff man. Forever jealous of your scenes and your work :peace:
