That's a great road-side sign!

Beautiful scenery!

Just curious - I understand the gravel road portion of the sign but how does one determine that the distance is for 100 kilometers?

(My sign entry is posted on my Drive-By Photos blog today.)

P.S. - I very much enjoyed the video!

I have never seen a road sign like that! Very symbolic way of showing changes in road conditions!

Great sign and that road sure looks rough...

this sign is new to my eyes.

An easy to understand sign! I like that!

The sign explains what you need to know. A gravel road is one way to keep drivers at a slower speed.

What a cool sign. Like the shadow, too. Never have seen one like it. Your shots are so interesting. Quite a different landscape from what I am used to seeing. genie

That's a super road sign! About a decade ago, I had the idea to start a website to post different unique road signs, especially the yellow warning ones. I already had some interesting photos to start it with, like a kiwi crossing the road. Alas, I did not have the time or technical skill to start it. But I think of the idea whenever I see a funny road sign... Today it is easy... just start a meme... and Lesley did! :-)

PS. It's nice to see your young son so carefree, laughing, and not at all concerned about having the car stuck in the middle of nowhere. Amazing scenery.

Thank you so much for your wonderful comments. Graet that you watched the video and glad that you liked it. Hans did all the editing while traveling.

Those are awesome shots...

Thanks very much for the kind words Carola! I speak German too (my mum's German), but since your writing in English, so will I. Anyways, I've looked through your blog and I like it as well! I've wanted to visit Namibia since I was a kid.
