The Path of The Gods

Under the shadow of an ancient ruin, resting on a forgotten terrace, Positano, Italy burst into life. A million flickering lights, nestled into Italy’s famous coast, makes a lovely cinema. The kicker- it was all ours!

The Alpine Kingdom: Lesotho and the Northern Drakensberg

In the High Drakensberg region of Lesotho Africa, the adventures are endless. No real trails, no real worries (well maybe keep everything inside your tent at night).

World Class Adventure: On Top of the Drakensberg Amphitheater

Where else in the world can you climb a chain ladder, bolted into a vertical, basalt rock face, starting in one country and ending in another? Where in Africa can you dip you bottle directly into the river and drink deeply without purification? Where else can you have a 4,000 foot cliff to yourself, to watch world class sunsets and sunrises? Atop the High Drakensberg, in the alpine nation of Lesotho, endless adventure awaits, you just need to choose your path!

The City of The Mountain: Cape Town, South Africa

There is perhaps no more dramatic a city than Cape Town, South Africa. Rising out of the clotted fogs of the western cape like a lurking leviathan, stands the iconic Table mountain. Endemic flora and wildlife live side by side with a bustling metropolis, where life fights for it’s small piece of land under the mountain or along the spiny Cape Point Peninsula. In such a place, a thriving city burns with a furious energy.

Epic Views, Little Hardship: The Tugela River Gorge

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.

Lower Drakensberg Grasslands, KwaZulu Natal, South Africa

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.
