Weekly Photo Challenge: Ephemeral – snow good expecting it to stay.


Now and again a particularly cold spell will cause a bit of snow to fall on the Inhlosane peak near Dargle in the Natal Midlands.  It is seldom there for more than a couple of days; sometimes only for part of a day. 

This picture has the extra ephemeral element of the snow making the mountain look rather unreal.


This is the view from the escarpment high up on the other side on the same day (the snowfall took place the previous afternoon).

Inhlosane normal

And this is the normal appearance.

  4. The top one does look so unreal – like you glued 2 images together. Lovely rolling shapes. The second one could be an advertisement for powered sugar.
