Starry Night in Kruger, South Africa

One of the things I really dislike about cities is the difficulty in enjoying a starry sky. While in South Africa I had the opportunity to feel our insignificance among the great amount of stars that can be seen. We really are not that important, and our problems can always be solved. It is wonderful how a sight can make you think about you, your world and how relativity is everywhere.

Olympus E – 410.

  1. This is a beautiful photograph and I understand completely what you mean. We live in Stellenbosch, but we have a guest farm “Bloutoring” (blue tower) in the Karoo. The Karoo is renowned for its clear starry skies. There are huge open spaces; it is sparsely populated and not commercialised. It is worth visiting if you come to South Africa again. A huge telescope was built at a little town called Sutherland.

  2. I’m glad you enjoyed the photograph. I did not have the opportunity to visit The Karoo nor the West part of your beautiful country, but will definitely take some time to enjoy the area if I ever come back.
