Photographer's Note

An ordinary view of the Swazi countryside, so far only the 9th photo on this site from this country, I upload this to contribute to this scant gallery, and of course also to add a new country to my list :-). This was taken from a panoramic lookout along the road from the capital, Mbanane, to Nelspruit, South Africa (the latter city looks like a transplant from Queensland, Australia). The terraced fields are not as impressive as the rice terraces of Asia obviously, and I had to crop to make the traditional rondavel village huts appear closer. I'm not sure if I selected the correct "state" for Piggs Peak, please let me know if it's not correct. This is in the northwest highlands, Swaziland is worth a detour when travelling in southern africa, even if the bureaucracy in crossing the border with a rental car takes longer than the time to drive across the entire country.
