The story behind the image
This is a view across the Twyfelfontein Valley, where some ancient artwork was found and preserved, presented as UNESCO World Heritage Site today. One can almost feel how the hunters must have felt, sitting there, waiting for some animals to show up or watching them stroll by, taking a rock and creating some of those paintings.
The photo shows the Lion’s Jaw Rock that got its name from its very unusual formation. The view is breathtaking as well as iconic and reminds me to Monument Valley in the USA.
