This is from the driving between Malealea and Sani Pass. I was pretty much following the lowlands towards northeast before heading into the mountaneous eastern part of the country. This is from a part of Lesotho that I perhaps found most picturesque, and it was just where the highlands really began. I was driving further and further into this valley after passing Butha-Buthe and the views got better and better as I approached the steep Moteng Pass. Unfortunately I couldn't stop as we were kind of in a hurry! And I was driving the car, so I had to be quick whenever I saw a photo opportunity (yes, I had the camera around my neck while driving). Anyway, if I ever go back to Lesotho, I'll make sure to drive/cycle this road again.

Wow! What a beautiful landscape! The colours and the shapes of the mountains are wonderful and the straight road included in the photo is really eye-catching - not that you had a choice not to include it, taking photos while driving. ;-)

It appears to be a most remarkable landscape if rather barren,with the spectacular mountain ranges an attractive feature.
The road leads very nicely into the frame giving it a good feeling of depth.

Beautiful panoramic view Fredrik!
Love the colours and the perspective element with the black road just outside the middle.
The colour of the vegitation is in a nice contrast to the blue sky.
You visited Leshoto in about the same time of the year as I did. Guess it was very cold there?
