[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Bourke's Luck Potholes are an example of soil erosion.These cylindrical holes, some of which are up to 6 meters deep, are situated at the confluence of the Blyde and Treur Rivers. The potholes were named after Tom Bourke who owned a very profitable gold mine nearby, these days called Bourkes Luck Ghost Mine, Where old mining equipment and a hanging bridge can still be seen.

Hallo uit Montreal van een Hollander, Flip !*__*
Prachtige opname hier.Looking to your shot the news that the oldest remainings of the Human species where found in beloved Zuid Afika also makes more sense seeing this place!
Baie lekker gedoen! Groet and TFS
