Bar­rier be­tween worlds

go! - - Take Your Pic Reader Photos -

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.

HOW? Canon EOS 5D Mark III, 24 – 70 mm lens, shut­ter speed 1/640 sec­ond, aper­ture f8, ISO 1250.
