We all have these photos … throwback photos!
It’s described as ‘nostalgia-inducing pictures … from a different era of your life”.
Every Thursday we will throw a photo of ‘way back when’ on our blog. Why on a Thursday? Because it’s just a day away from the weekend … and we love weekends!
You are welcome to join in or just enjoy the photo (#TB Thursday).
The Augrabies Falls, South Africa
We’re sticking with the Orange River as the theme for Throwback Thursday (which we featured in last week’s Throwback Thursday #3 – you can read that post here).
This photo was taken in December 1994 – Berto and I were in our early 20’s visiting Augrabies Falls during a holiday. The Augrabies waterfall (‘place of great thunder’) is in the Northern Cape Province of South Africa and a waterfall in the Orange River with a height of 56m (183 ft).
However, when we visited the falls that day, it was during one of the driest and warmest months – the temperature was around 45°C (113 Fahrenheit)! That’s probably why there is a bit of a haziness in the photo … but it could also be because it was taken 28 years ago.
- This waterfall was as recent as a month ago in flood. When this happens, visitors usually flock there to witness the awe-inspiring sight.
