Yellowstone’s beauty will take breath away
CONGRATULATIONS to Joletta Frahm of Hermanus for her picture of the landscape at the Yellowstone National Park in Wyoming, US.
She says: “This is the Grand Prismatic Spring. These colours are caused by blue-green algae or photosynthetic bacteria, not plant material, growing in the hot water, though minerals also colour some unusual hot springs. The colours first appear bright yellow and then brilliant orange. Dark browns and greens appear when the water temperature drops and it is unsafe for humans to touch.”
Frahm wins a midweek stay for four at Montagu Springs.
The runners-up are Pam Parkin of Oranjezicht for her picture of Gemsbok in the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park and Gary Wepener of Gardens for his picture of the view from his caravan in Grabouw.
Parkin and her husband were on a 4x4 eco trail. “It was great. I took many photos of Gemsbok because I think they are such beautiful antelope.”
Wepener recently visited the Mac Daddy Caravan Park in Grabouw. “The views of the valley are fantastic.” Competition rules: ● All photographs must relate to travel, and you may enter as many times as you like.
