[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
Well, once I can figure out how to upload to Treklens without landing up with a teeny weeny photo I will be happy indeed... grin... and will upload the photo again!

In the meantime... Clouds above Ixopo... A reminder that everything is connected, and everything is perfect...

this is a well taken photo,the dancing plant echo the moving cloud.
yor photo size is small, try size it up next upload.

Hello Maggi,

Welcome to TrekLens and I wish you a long stay and many pleasant experiences.

Even at this small size it clearly is a very pleasant image. The cloud formation is marvellous and the grasses in the FG are beautiful I am sure. By the way, for other viewers who might be interested, the name Ixopo was derived from the Ixopo River with "Ixopo" being a Zulu word and meaning "...'marsh', referring to the squelchy sound made by hoofs being withdrawn from the mud. ... This was the setting for Alan Paton's novel 'Cry the Beloved Country'." - Raper, Peter E (2004) New Dictionary of South African Place Names (3rd Ed). Jonathan Ball Publishers - Johannesburg & Cape Town. P. 156.

Your photo processing software will have a function for resizing images (F2, for example, in PhotoStudio) and you can then set it to 800 Megapixels along the longest side.
