Many thanks for all the ccs on my last upload - always appreciated.
I was quite amazed to notice, when checking my portfolio, that I have been uploading wildlife images only for a very long time. I do take pictures of almost everything and I thought today I might put on a landscape.
This is a panorama of the beach at Draaihoek - sunsets over the endless Western Cape beaches in South Africa are truly inspirational and the sense of space and loneliness exhilarating after time spent in a crowded world. The sea is, of course, freezing cold and inland is desert and semidesert.
This is two images stitched in PS but I must have a couple of hundred shots of the West coast in all it's evening glory - hope you like this one. A

Looks can deceive without a doubt as this looks so gentle and welcoming with those lovely pastel shades! Beautifully composed and captured, then stitched!

I too upload mainly wildlife these days so it is difficult to believe that landscapes are my favourite subject, its because I do not have time to travel and have pretty well exhausted all the local ones.

This is a wonderful image.
