Skywatch Friday - a gnu sunset

These wildebees, or gnu's if you prefer, were photographed at Kleinpoort, which is about 120 kms from Port Elizabeth. I just loved the way light caused the layering effect of the mountains.

It is a very interesting shot. The silvery sky in the background contrasts well against the silhouetted hills and animals. It looks like it could be in National Geographic Mag! Have a good weekend!

Hi...it's me again. You asked about the labels. I have mine set to "frequency" rather than "alphabetical"; I just went into the layout and edited the badge. You probably have your set on both settings. Thanks for visiting my pic!

This has a nice atmosphere about it Max. I know someone who has a place in those apartments you took a picture of in St Francis. It looks lovely there.

Yes, it is a Monarch. I am hard at work to get my site up for species identification and hope to have a lot completed in another few weeks time. I will let you know when it is done Max then you can always check on there. I am doing it the wag Bugguide is in the USA but it will not be only bugs. We sadly lack books on these subjects here.

When I look at a scene like this, I always think that the mountains look like a bad special effect. Why? you ask. Cause you can see right through them.
