Its in the small details: Orange River / Richtersveld

While paddling down the Orange River one was allowed to appreciate the vastness and expanse of the Richtersveld. However, when you manage to cast your eyes down to terra firma – there are little gems scattered around that are equally impressive.

This little prickly creature is less than 2cm tall.

“Sout slaai” (tr: salt salad)- Would go well with tequila

Its in the small detail – these flowers are about 0.5cm in diameter.

The most reactive non-metal on the periodic table – Flourine (cf earlier post on Fluorspar in the evening fire)

Home sweet home.

Evidence that there was a flurry of activity next to where i slept before waking up.

A lone inflorescence with a view

Next post is going to require some brushing up on my plate tectonic theory.
