Jeri-Jeri they were playing live in Berlin at the CTM festival a few weeks ago. This was a brilliant performance!

Their debut album 800% Ndagga is here:

This is not a cow and not in Switzerland and it doesn't wear a cowbell... although the smell outside was almost like on an alpine pasture in Europe...

Deserts in mirror may be larger than they appear

Just a casual shot out of the window from our Toyota Hilux with a rather large camping cabin on its back while driving through the #Kgalagadi  Transfrontier Park (the route from the Bitterpan wilderness camp)...

I was contacted last year by Granta Books, a publisher from UK, and they were interested in using this image as cover for Norman Rush's novel Mortals – this is the result:

Yesterday, I picked up my copy from the post office. This 3-year old shot made my day.

The place where I worship is the wild open spaces (Calie Pistorius)
Introduction
I am a physicist who loves his profession and a passionate amateur photographer. Primary subjects are nature, wildlife and travel photography. This is what I mostly share on G+. I love to engage with other passionate amateur or professional photographers, always willing to learn and evolve.

All work on my photos, including RAW processing, creating slide show movies and books is done with open source software on a Linux operating system. I love the open source approach to both software and hardware technology and any new ideas, developments and fields of usage are welcome!

Southern Africa and Madagascar are my primary destinations - anything important happening there certainly matters for me. I'm also dreaming of returning to Nigeria one day where I spent a significant part of my childhood.

Science and technology are welcome topics as long as people know what they're talking about and don't abuse it for their political agenda. I am curious about constructive out-of-the-box ideas that foster human progress and the protection of nature and biodiversity but I hate superficial smattering about saving the planet and hubristic, totalitarian ideologies that consider human beings as a disease that needs to be wiped off the planet. If you want to bother someone with your 64738th lament about global warming, please go elsewhere.
