The thing that stands out most about Castleburn is that it doesn't stand out at all. Architecturally designed to blend into the landscape of the Southern Drakensberg, the resort's most prominent feature is the rocky pinnacles that surround it. With Lake Madingofani at its feet, Castleburn lures eland, reedbuck and around a hundred bird species to its peaceful surrounds.
Very nice shot. Voted.
Hendrik van den Berg: This is an excellent photo. I recently visited Kruger NP. Our tour guide commented on these rock formation (you call them Granite Koppies). I think our guide claims these are some of the oldest rock formations on earth, dating back some 3.5 billion years to the break up of the super continent Pangea. Can you tell me more about the geology or direct me to a website that gives more details? I would be grateful for direction to additional information on this?
WOW! Ek het nog nooit die rivier so vol gesien nie!
Silvermine Nature Reserve forms part of the Table Mountain National Park in Cape Town, South Africa. It covers the section of the Cape Peninsula mountain range from the Kalk Bay mountains through to Constantiaberg. The area is a significant conservation area for the indigenous fynbos vegetation.
The Ou Kaapse Weg freeway runs through the reserve, cutting it into a northern and southern section. The Silvermine reservoir, on the north side, was built in 1898 to supply water to Cape Town.
Good shot! Voted :-) Greetins Eva from Wellington
