Eats, Shoots, and Trees – fields and trees of the Drakensberg, South Africa

The next few weeks you’re going to see a series of photos taken from the Drakensberg. The mountain range, which translated into English means the ‘dragon mountains’, is one of South Africa’s iconic landscapes. Home to a multitude of heritage sites the mountain ranges have a distinct face that can leave a hiker walking for days. The Drakensberg never fails to surprise the photographer, with a new photo around every corner.

Hiking along the Drakensburg during Winter can be dry and golden. But the views are fantastic.
