An impressive canyon system, very well captured in this wide expansive landscape shot, Herman.
A visual delight at every turn on the four day hike.

Just like the Grand Canyon give or take a few million years Grin

Fantastic shot. Was the time on your camera right? It doesn't look like a mid - late morning shot to me. Even for mid-winter I would have thought the sun would be higher overhead.

Of course that is the only sane time of the year to visit Fish River.

That is a pretty good shot for someone who doesn't use Photoshop. Good colours and a great view.
