[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
The Cederberg area of the north-western Cape, about 270 km north of Cape Town, is perfect for hiking, with its vast, tumbled rockscapes, strange formations sculpted by nature, and choice of trails to view the ancient rock art of the San Bushman.

The Sevilla Rock Art Trail, which starts about 36 km from Clanwilliam, , is a four-kilometre ramble along the Brandewyn River that most can manage, and has nine sites of rock art paintings (often made of blood, gall, egg-white and ochre) left behind by the San people, who inhabited the area for thousands of years.

Hi May,

have you appreciated South Africa's beauties?In this image is an example from one of hundred places where rock art paintings can be found in that country.The picture gives a feeling of abstract that probably would be enhanced by a colours saturation slightly higher (+5 or +10 maximum).But this is a detail related only to PP.There is a slight OE on the left side of the image that ruins just a little the whole.



Hello May Jayne,
Who are you really...living so far away and knowing the Western Cape like the palm of your hand?

About your image: I judge what I see in front of me and it is beautiful. The rock paintings usually are more faded than what we see here, so this is very good. Well done.
