We are blessed with blue skies and sun almost year round. However, during the winter we have some cloudy days, perhaps even heavy, almost black/purple rain clouds. This is when the desert changes its face – and the sights are fascinating. Winter is my favourite season as a photographer and nature lover. The acacia trees fill with beautiful green foliage, and colourful wild flowers appear after the first rains. The combination of the soft light with the cloudy skies, the mountains and the vast desert creates some breathtaking moments.
