Jun. 16 – Drakensberg

Hello again. Well I have just returned from another photography tour run in the beautiful Northern Drakensberg that is Royal Natal Park. This time it was all 5 of my photography volunteers here in St. Lucia, myself, and Emil who was running the workshop. It was a very very windy and cold weekend, with temperatures hovering just above zero; it even snowed while we were heading up the chain ladder! The views were well worth it, with a light dusting of snow on top, with blue skies and rushing waterfalls, amazing sunrises with rainbows and storms. It was another fun weekend full of lots of hiking, even a little over some icy sections going up. Here are some photos of the weekend – enjoy!
