Photographer's Note

The Drakensberg, or shortened to "The Berg",by the locals, is a dramatic mountain range that runs the East coast of Southern Africa..

It is one of those wonderful places in the world where you can loose your soul in its beauty- however you can as easily loose your life as it is cruel and often beaten by storms, harsh weather and extensive veldfires.. In Fact the name Drakensberg is transalated to Dragon Mountains.

This photo was taken over 12 years ago from the top of the "Amphitheatre".. Believe it of not it is a relatively easy days walk, should you base yourself at base camp (driveable) or stay at the Witsieshoek Hotel - Highest Hotel in the Southern Hemisphere (apparently). The path Zig Zags up the side of the high ridges, until you come to the Sandstone Ridge.. This is then transeversed by a steel chain ladder.. Once on top the views are dramatic..

So my apologies for digging up old digital images (tiny in comparison to todays J pegs).. However I just love this spot in the world- I place I must visit soon.. ..

PS Will post a few taken back in 2000- when still living in Africa
