@Jean-Luc.M: Thank you. Photo actually does not tell true story of the landscape. Other than clusters of growth such as the one one in the photo, most of the area is extremely arid due to current drought conditions

Not only have you done a magnificent capture of beautiful, rich color, but you've also emphasized the many textures of life. The coarse, thick windblown grasses, the dry and rough rocky soil the viewer is provoked to imagine, the rigid, durable, proud and lonely solid metal of the weary windmill overlooking its place. Marvelous work!

@Timothy: Thank you so much. Appreciate the extensive comment

"where the dust settles on my skin
where the wind calls my name,
where my soul aches to live
and yearns to lie down and die
where the windmills crank their weary song,"
Extract of a poem of the Karoo by Helen Lockhart.

This often dry and arid region of South Africa holds its own unique beauty and is often only seen by eyes willing to look. It is a place of silence and aloneness and one's spirit must be strong to survive here. For the visitor it offers a chance to forget the noise.
