Mist in ‘The Ruens’ 2 (3 pictures)

‘The Ruens is the name for the rolling hills between Napier Mountain and the Riviersonderend Mountains in the Overberg region in the Western Cape, South Africa.

On top of my world

As I live in a small village there are no skyscrapers but we do have mountains around.

Napier Mountain is the highest and it’s a long hike to get to the top. The views are magnificent; with a clear sky up to 60 kilometer of even more.

Here a shot from the top of my world. Shot with 300mm Zeiss (on Sony A77), cropped and perspective slightly distorted. Final processing with MacPhun Aurora. The mountains at the horizon (in a bird’s flight approx. 50km) are a bit higher than Napier Mountain.
