Views of South Africa

I've been meaning to feature some of the SA stuff I've fav'd in the last while, and at last have the time (and bandwidth!) to look though and select some. I had more landscapes than I realised - so I've started there. I'll do another one with some of the people shots. There is one shot that's not strictly SOUTH Africa, but there aren't a lot of Namibians on dA, so I'm including it here.

Almost all have location and shot details in their descriptions, so, in pearwood's spirit - "go forth and comment".
