Tranquil African Farm

We often drive through this area, north of Johannesburg. On Saturday afternoon we stopped at the flooded river just a short distance (a few hundred metres) from this seemingly tranquil scene. A concerned farmer, passing by, warned us never to stop here. This area has recently become notorious for hijackings. The week before two motorcyclists had been shot dead at the river crossing. No further pictures from this area! Derrick, Canon 1Ds Mk2, 20-35mm f2.8 L
