Painted from three photographs off the web. The setting is in Mpumalanga (pronounced uhm poo muh lang guh) some incredible scenery, I'd love to go there. Dennis and Nolan are probably familiar with the area?
The foreground I tried unsuccessfully to show 'Aloe Vera' plants, proved too difficult so covered them with trees.
