If South Africa had a coffee table book of quintessence, the three things that would fight for the cover would be the biological wonders of Kruger National Park, the iconic beauty of Table Mountain, and the quiet, hulking giant of the Drakensberg Amphitheater, home to the second tallest waterfall on Earth, and the Tugela River Gorge.
Wandering through the old and new streets of Madrid, Spain in the Winter and Spring of 2015.
Under the shadow of the Wall of Spears, Dragon Mountains, or Drakensberg, the alpine grasslands ebb and flow like the bushveld so commonly found there. Wildlife abounds in the big sky country of KwaZulu-Natal, South Africa, and the night sky is one of the most dazzling that can be found on Earth.
This gallery is a series of shots from the Drakensberg lowlands around the area in which I lived for three months. The nearest towns would be Winterton or Bergville, but most of my time was spent in the bush or in unmarked farmland. Enjoy.
