Sunset over Loxton

I have never been to Loxton, or indeed anywhere in South Africa. I discovered the town through Blood Safari, a crime novel of Deon Meyer. I blogged about it here. I am reading at the moment Thirteen Hours, so I thought about Loxton, even though the novel is not set there. I also remembered Meyer shot a movie in Loxton, and he had taken a lot of pictures and uploaded them on his Facebook page. A lot of beautiful pictures. So I shamelessly downloaded one to put here on Vraie Fiction. The most picturesque I could find. I don't like to share pictures I did not take myself (or at least a member of my family), but the town of Loxton has fascinated me since I started reading about it that I had decided to upload it. Its name is kind of banal, yet it looks so genuinely exotic, a small town in the middle of nowhere, at the edge of the world, on the other side of the world. So yes, I decided to upload this picture. In the end, it is a beautiful sunset.
