Mountainside Curves

A visit to the winter mountainside in Swaziland shows off the natural curves one can see in the landscape. The mountainside we visited sloped downwards creating a curve we could easily see with a naked eye.

The rocks dotted on the landscape added to the curves that surrounded us.

These rocks were interspersed with the African winter grasses, adding character to the scene before us.

I enjoyed the moments we spent out on the Swazi mountainside, looking before us at all that nature offers. The landscape is so different to the straight rectangular features of a large city.

Even the plants are a far cry from the pointed edges I normally see. Their rounded tops and unfurled leaves were a pleasure to look at.

I enjoy looking at the natural curves of an African mountainside. Every time we visit Swaziland, I feast my eyes on this sight.

Do you enjoy looking at mountainous landscapes?
