Blue mountains of the Karoo

Karoo blue mountains

There is an Afrikaans folk song made famous by Johannes Kerkorrel that starts off mentioning the blue mountains.
“Al lê die berge nog so blou,
al lê die berge nog so blou,
al lê die berge nog so blou,
haar woorde sal ek steeds onthou.”

Whenever I see the blue silhouette of mountains on the horizon this song always pops up in my head and it was no different while driving through the Eastern Cape’s Karoo Heartland on my way to Graaff-Reinet. This time I had to stop though for a blue mountain photo with a windpomp as point of focus.
