Storm clouds gather over the Kgalagadi Transfrontier Park, bringing promise of some welcome rain. During my recent visit to the Park, temperatures raced from a mere 9 degrees before sunrise to beyond 30 degrees within hours.
Situated in the Northernmost corner of the Northern Cape, and incorporating area within Botswana and Namibia, this arid to semi arid climate receives it’s rarely more than 100mm per annum of rainfall in summer, mostly falling during heavy thunderstorms.
It wasn’t long before the dramatic clouds were joined by thunder and lighting, and the inevitable rainstorm. Before long it was all over and transformed the arid landscape into one what appeared like a wetland with wonderful reflections of the 180deg rainbow overhead.
Landscape is the prompt on the Weekly Photo Challenge this week, and images before and after the storm are my response to the prompt.
