Photographer's Note

Nababeep (with the accent on the second 'a') is a small mining town in the desert area of the Northern Cape, getting close to the southern end of Namibia. Coming through the Namaqualand area ,in mid-winter is the full-on desert experience. In Spring, however, one of the world's most spectacular flower displays on the planet erupts in bloom with huge fields of the desert covered in daisies, gazanias and other desert flowers.

This shot has been cropped (to take out some of the Nababeep rooftops) - but you might be surprised at how little saturation I have used: I got lucky with the sky under strong side-lighting from a late afternoon sun, and the flowers really are that colour. BTW - Southern Hemisphere Spring if you are thinking of visiting.
