Greetings from South Africa

Hello, my name is Alison. I live on a farm outside a very small town called Hopetown in the Northern Cape which is 150km from Kimberley which is the biggest town closest to me. I use a Pentax K7

Welcome to the forum, from a quick look at Google maps, you appear to be almost in the middle of South Africa, a fair way from those stunning beaches.

Look forward to seeing some of you pictures from where you are.

I am indeed in the middle of the country and it's a stunning spot - we have the most magnificent sunsets and lighting here. Will post some pics - have just got my internet connection working but it's rather slow. I suppose that's the joys of living in the middle of nowhere

How do I upload a pic - it asks for a URL
