Taken somewhere on the long road through the Karoo close to Oudtshoorn,in the Klein Karoo (small Karoo) between the Swartberg and Outeniqua mountains, on the long road from Cape Town to Johannesburg.
There is the small Karoo and the Great Karoo, usually the Karoo is a dry region, but during August/September after the meager rains the landscape is coloured with carpets of wild flowers.

Reading some novels based where the action takes place in South Africa, often they were talking about Karoo landscape. I was wondering what it looks like. Now, I know.
Great the house was bright, it gives a good anchor in the composition of the shot, and helps to underline the colors of the landscape.

What a beautiful part of the world....
A fabulous shot, powerful and absorbing, good composition to capture their majesty and the way the little catchy house is clicking our sense and leads to the spectacular landscape. The huge mountain range frames and acts as a nice barrier. Lovely that you have managed the light really well, the range of colour is gorgeous, love the way the blooms fills the fg is just brilliant. Thanks for sharing one of the most tranquil landscapes, this is just tasty spot on terrific! Goood Eye Popper, Love it.
