The Green Canyon

Under a beautifully patterned sky, the Three Rondavels rise up from the green floor and river of Blyde River Canyon, Mpumalanga, South Africa.

Under a beautifully patterned sky, the Three Rondavels rise up from the green floor and river of Blyde River Canyon, Mpumalanga, South Africa.  We took a detour on our long trip back to JNB from Letaba in 2013, getting up early so we could fit in some of the sights around Graskop.  I’m glad we did – we arrived at this point in Blyde around 9am, sun slowly burning through the residual clouds, and with nobody else at the site.  After a pleasant gaze into the horizon we turned back to the car, just in time to pass a huge chattering German tour party descending down the path.  Fortuitous timing!

The main viewpoint seems to have moved from when we first visited as romantic newlyweds on honeymoon back in 2002 – but that’s not the only change… our camera equipment and photography skills have improved somewhat. For a before and after see the shots above and below….I’ll let you guess which is which 🙂
