We came accross this group of travellers. Typical Lesotho scene: people covered in blankets, riding horses in the high mountain areas and breathtaking views.

Oh, a picture like from biblical times as Joseph and his brothers rode through the desert- I love the composition, the brown, sunburnt grass and the misty, nevertheless breathtaking view till the horizon- that must have been for you a very impressive travel-experience! (Yes, I remember how cool it was early in the morning or late in the evening -as I were in the Sinai desert!)
Louis: Funny that you would think of desert here. The grass colour is turning to brown as happens in the african winter. In summer the area is the lushest green, probably in all of africa. But yes, it is cold up in the mountains this time of the year and the people's customs is that of people living far away from modern conveniences. Very old landish.
Wow : Likey !!
Louis: Merci m'sieu

Wonderful image Louis almost Biblical like !!

This scene feels like it could be from 2000 years ago. Beautiful.
Louis: Thank you Edward, it does seem to be from way back.
As I come back on this one and looking at it more carefully, I think about these old pictures in the Bible ! This is really a masterpiece !
As I've already used my likey right I've to tell you :
