Barrier between worlds
More than 120 million years ago, shifting tectonic plates caused the rocks that make up the Swartberg to fold, crumple and rise from the earth. These days, the mountain range is a natural barrier between the desolate plains of the Great Karoo and the comparatively lush Little Karoo. This photo was taken near the summit of the Swartberg Pass, where there is nearly always mist, regardless of the season.
