The story behind the image
We had spent the night at the awesome Twyfelfontain Lodge and had – after an excellent breakfast – visited the Twyfelfontain heritage site. Now we were on our way to Torra Bay, a village situated within the Skeleton Coast National Park. We intended to re-fuel our car there and enjoy the impressions of a genuinely remote holiday destination. (It did not work out as planned, but that’s a different story.)
Along the C39 we stopped several times to admire the landscape, including this view of the grasveld with several mountains as backdrop. It was quite silent, and a warm wind was blowing gently. It was a truly relaxing experience that I remember well.
I like the soft color tones and gently curved lines formed by the hills and mountains in the back.
