AFRICA AT ITS BEST

A mag­i­cal Mer­w­eville sun­set.

In Fe­bru­ary last year, Toast Coet­zer and I ex­plored the Ka­roo for the TV se­ries Weg Agter­paaie. Af­ter an ac­tion-packed day, which in­cluded a moun­tain-bike ride and a visit to the fos­silised di­nosaur foot­prints in Fraser­burg, we set off for Mer­w­eville. We were in a rush to get there be­fore dark, but when we saw this spec­tac­u­lar sun­set we just had to pull over. Di­rec­tor and cam­era­man Chris­ti­aan Kritzinger was also tak­ing pho­tos and his sil­hou­ette caught my eye. It was one of those mag­i­cal Ka­roo evenings: no breeze, clouds hang­ing sus­pended in the sky and the land­scape slip­ping silently into dark­ness.
