SWF-Camdeboo National Park sunset in South Africa

We rushed up to the overlook for a highly recommended Camdeboo National Park sunset over the Valley of Desolation but had to be out of the gate before it barely began.

Such a shame we couldn’t have watched more of the sunset from the overlook.

Because it was glorious.

But that didn’t stop me from shooting as Joan drove back down towards camp.

Even made a few stops along the way.

    The Karoo, like Arizona, is big sky country and makes for the most beautiful sunsets. I love the Valley of Desolation. Such a relaxing place and ideal for a romantic sunset picnic

      Joan did most of the driving when we traveled together so I got to take the drive-by shots. All the world shares the beautiful skies. Aint’ that grand?
