Title: Show us your pictures on "THE GREAT PLAINS"
Post by: Wolfmother on September 04, 2009, 07:21:41 am
I found this thread on ADV rider: http://www.advrider.com/forums/showthread.php?t=499369

I thought it would be a good idea to start the same thread for our motherland. Nough said.

Show us your pictures of your "GREAT PLANES" of AFRICA:

Awesome pics michnus. 

Something we rock climbers call 'exposure' is when you climb a 500m cliff with a huge open space all around you. Makes a grade 17 feel like a 25.  I get the same feeling of extreme tiny-ness when cruzing at 160 down a road like this.  You feel absolutely inferior to the earth.

here are a couple that I took

I don't know if Verneukpan qualifies as a great plain. The pans are on a great plain though

can you identify all the pics?

LS, to me you have a wonderful eye for a photo but this one epitomises a lot about 'the great plains' to me.  Brilliant eye.
