A few posts back, I wrote about my Karoo road trip for Getaway Magazine which I illustrated with behind the scene shots taken with my iPhone. The story has just reached the shelves in the latest Getaway and so I can post some of the images they used including some others.
In August last year I went to the Hantam Vleisfees, an annual event that is uniquely South African and celebrates everything lamb, literally from head to tail. This visit revealed a greater story, one that required a second visit and time spent with a few of the key players in farming and producing Karoo lamb and of course the sheep themselves.
The warmth of the people, the amazing open spaces and the passion for good lamb recipes should be incentive enough but for photography it is inspiring.
If these photos got you in the mood for lamb, try one of these delicious lamb recipes:
