Tu as une joli vue sur ces montagnes.
Louis: C'est une belle vue pour aller avec le café. Merci Martine.
Super shot, Louis, this could be Englands Lake district.
Louis: We are blessed with a variety of nature types and this is one of them. Only things is that we don't have a lot of lakes here. The abundance of water can be found in wetlands, rivulets and underground containers. Our KwaZulu-Natal looks much the same.
Oh what a beautiful shot, Louis - I had to double check who posted this... as Frank says, it looks like it could be The Lake District in England!
Louis: Like the Lakes District, but without lakes. Thank you, Elizabeth.

Looks a bit cold out there Louis
Louis: It does look that way, but I was outside drinking coffee, wearing shorts and t-shirt.

It certainly has an early morning feel about it, Louis
Louis: It is the fog, I think, that is responsible for that feeling.
Something I never would have expected where you are, Louis!
Louis: We are blessed with a variety of nature types and this is one of them, Ginnie.

Ik ben enthousiast over je foto!
Louis: Dankjewel, Philine
That is a fine view to have with a morning cuppa Louis
Louis: Absolutely, Bill.
Very old looking rock Louis.
Louis: Sandstone according my limited geological knowledge. Many of this type of mountain ranges are (so say those who haven't even been there at the time) the result in a lift of land (always on the southern side, with a smooth gradient on the northern side) in the times when Gondwana split and tectonic plate shifts occurred. So, the rock would date from ancient times.
What interesting rockiness on those hills.
Louis: Sandstone shows a somewhat orange colour.
I wouldn't complain about looking out at that lovely view with my early morning coffee.
Louis: I love early mornings at this place, Brian.

I do love this... everything early morning and with fog is my kind of time. Those mountains (old mountains, I learned at school, round mountains are old and the spiky ones are not that old..) are wonderful.
A likey to me, Louis.
Louis: Thank you Astrid, I am delighted. Never heard the round and spiky mountain theory before - so what is a couple of million years to a mountain?
this view reminds me of Wales for some reason Louis... love the clouds surrounding the mountain....petersmile
Louis: Probably the green feet of the mountain range. Heh, what would I know, as I haven't been to Wales, yet. Thank you, peter.
Beware of falling rock by the look of it!
Louis: One evening, we experienced an earthquake, with its epicentre in Botswana and about a thousand kms away. It lasted for about one and a half minute and had me thinking of falling rocks.
A great view--reminds me of Scotland...
Louis: There is some comparison, I agree and thank you, Larry.
