Hi Peter,
A smooth presentation of this carpet of flowers.Great depth and well exposed.Ive always wanted to see this Namaqualand marvel.

Very nice photo of this landscape!

Hi Peter,
That is a most wonderful wild colored carpet. Do you know what flower these are?
AS for a artistic value, I feel that the photo needs something strong. Something like a large rock on the FG or a single tree in the distance. I am not sure it was available, but I might be worth a tip to take with you when in the field.

Hello Peter,
An awesome image to behold with blooms that seem to carpet the ground as far as the eye can see. I can definitely understand why this area is such a tourist attraction. I am left wonderfing if there are bee's as numerous in which to pollinate the thousands of tiny flowers. Stunning image!!

Hi Peter,
This is an amazing field of flowers there must be a million of them out there. The place must smell terrific. I would love to be one of your tourist.

Hello Peter,
Now this is something I one day want to see. Absolutely beautiful image and thanks for sharing it with us.
