Skywatch Friday - Great Karoo and Great Skies

The start of the Great Karoo, just after the village of Strydenburg in the Northern Cape. To get out into these wide open spaces, was one of the reasons why we embarked on this trip. I find this open country with its big skies amazing. When you close your eyes and stand still and listen, there is absolute silence and you know you are in the middle of "nowhere". It is a harsh, but beautiful part of the world

Oh, such beautiful skies, Max! I have to admit that I'm a bit envious -- ours are back to dark and gray!! Hope you and your family have a wonderful weekend!

There is just something special about the Karoo. Most people hate driving through it because they think there isn't anything to see, but if they just open their eyes.
