Taking an Early morning break
South Africa
On Day one of my Fall Phototour, I drove through the Eastern Freestate. This area is truly beautiful with grass-covered hills and mountainous terrain. Due to the long distances people travel in South Africa, the roadsides are dotted with little rest stops where you can get out your picnic baskets and have a quick meal or stretch your legs. For guys like us who want to take photographs or panoramas, these stops are ideal for taking a break and capturing the environment. This specific rest stop is located just outside the village called Frankfort in the Eastern Freestate. From here you can travel on to Golden Gate National Park or find a Guest house somewhere on a farm and take the most glorious night sky pictures

More About Africa

Welcome to Africa, AKA the motherland! Check out African Internet Radio while you're scoping the panoramas.The earliest fossil of the homo sapiens family (human beings) was found in Ethiopia, dating back more than 200,000 years. Compared to this length of time, even the "ancient Sumerians" from 6000 B.C. are drooling toddlers.Let's mention a few African heroes you may have heard of, for inspiration in the face of the continued economic inequality and violence which plague Africa today: Nelson Mandela, first democratically elected President of South Africa, who fought against apartheid and served 27 years in prison while advocating freedom and peace. Haile Salassie, Emperor of Ethiopia, who resisted Mussolini and the fascist Italian invasion of WWII, and who is worshipped as an incarnation of God by the Rastafari movement. Kwame Nkrumah, first Prime Minister of Ghana, advocate of uniting Africa in Pan-Africanism. Fela Kuti, inventor of Afrobeat music, who declared his home to be an independent state, ran for president of Nigeria, and to whose funeral ONE MILLION PEOPLE came to pay their respects.In June 2001 the African Union was formed, consisting of 53 African States organized, like in the EU, around common economic and political development.Text by Steve Smith.
