[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I drove up the Sani pass from South Africa to Lesotho. This can only be done with a 4WD due to the state the road is in. It took me the better part of 3 hours to get to the top. There is the bordercontrol of Lesotho.
After a cup of coffee in Africa's highest pub I drove on in the late afternoon hours. Nearing sunset I stopped the car and shot this picture. I sat there watching and enjoying this spectacual view until it was dark.

Shot in JPEG.
Increased contrast
Darkened highlights slightly
This was done in PSE3
Reduced noise with Neatimage
Framed and resized for posting with PSE3

Excellent and the framing is absolutely spot on. Need to hang this on your wall. Well done.

bonjour edwin

Hello Edwin...
A very beautiful composition... a very beautiful subject! The layers of hills in fading blue, the clouds with golden linings from the setting sun, it is all very beautiful and very well taken care of by a photographer who knows the trade!
Pablo -

I'll return with your well deserved greenie tomorrow, seems like I'm always out after week-ends... hehehehe OK!

Amazing clouds and great colours. I like the blue of the mountain in the background. I can imagine you don't want to leave this beautiful view..

Hi Edwin,
This photo made to remember me my infancy in Africa (Angola), where the sunset was always spectacular, as your photo registers so well.

Lovely photo Edwin. Excellenet potrayal of the hills and those glorious rays. TFS

This is a beauty Edwin. I like the layered colours.


Great photo, a lot of PP (!) but the end result is nice
Take care

Amazing! The image quality leaves a bit to be desired.. but a point and shoot will do that to ya. I wish I was there.


Beautiful photo with a good choice of frame. The sky looks very dramatic!!

De beroemde Sani Pass... Gaan we binnekort weer heen! Mooi he?! We zijn ook is een hele dag in Lesotho geweest, maar van de andere kant. Het is daar heel mooi en zo bergachtig. Heb ook daar wat foto's gemaakt maar toen had ik mijn SLR nog niet dus die zijn helaas niet zo mooi.
Deze zonsondergang maakt je gewoon stil...
