A friend of mine took some photos when he went out with Toyota Enviro outreach. Not sure who or what they are. Here are some pics he took.

That plant life is totally different from the norm, and yet has a beauty that is unique and second to none! That such beauty can emanate from such a harsh arid area is truly something to behold.

Life is like a jar of Jalapeño peppers ... what you do today, might burn your ass tomorrow.
Don't take life too seriously ..... no-one gets out alive.
It's not about waiting for storms to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain.
And be yourself ..... everyone else is taken!

Dankie, die fotos is regtig puik.

Froll, Jy het nie dalk die regte name vir elkeen nie?
Die Namakwaland name val lekker op die tong en is mooi beskrywend.

Dankie en Groete. :thumbup: :thumbup: :thumbup:

Johan, ja die pel van my wat die pics gevat het ken all die name uit sy kop. HY doen trips met Americanse menseen hy is retig goed met die blomme, hy doen dit deel tyds, maar is baie van die tyd in die veld as gevolg van sy werk.
