Zululand

Posted on

A place close to my heart and roots. Zululand, Kwa-Zulu Natal. One of the most beautiful places in South Africa. This was a little holiday trip down to the coast of Sodwana Bay. What a place! Green miles and miles, thornbush treas, Zulu huts. Oh man, words cannot explain the tranquility of this place. On […]

Western Cape – Cape Town

Posted on

Travels are always my best occasions. Having been to the Cape plenty times, one should always be prepared for the weather. Making photography either difficult for those challenged by weather or it could be the best shoot ever! I was down in the Cape for business, as always my camera is always right beside me always ready to snap. The Cape has always been an amazing historical place in Southern Africa, where most colonies arrived at. Having family roots in the Cape Swellendam area, the Cape will always be very inspiring to me.

Here is a look at some photos I took on my business trip with my father!

About 2 years ago this very large cargo vessel was anchored outside of Cape Town harbour waiting for a berth, when it broke loose from its anchor in bad weather. They couldn’t get the engines started enough and it got stranded on the Blouberg Strand Beach, table bay Cape Town. Most of the ship has been cut down buy a salvage company already.There is a possibility that much of the hull will be left behind as it is already becoming a small natural reef. The images I took here are from Blouberg Strands’ side facing the front of Table Mountain

Kalk Bay is a fishing harbour filled with many reefs, favourable to most surfers in the area. Theses houses are quite the tourist destination. Its modern day history started when the Dutch East India Company proclaimed Simon’s Bay a winter anchorage for their ships from May 15th to August 15th each year from 1742.

Statue of Andrew Murray in Wellington (May 9, 1828 – January 18, 1917) was a South African writer, teacher, and Christian pastor.

Total Lunar Eclipse for South Africa 15 June 2011

Posted on

Photo taken 1200mm

It is upon events like these that I want to jump up and grab my camera with full on excitement, to watch and photograph such a spectacular event that happens rarely. My whole life I have been inspired by nature photography having traveled Africa numerous times for a period of two years. Photographing nature and really blessed to know that God created this wonderful, beautiful, earth with so much perfection in nature as well as fine detail, from shapes to colour. Oh what a world we have! People should stand still for one second and realize what an awesome Earth we have. It’s hard not to complain about everyday life struggles, but look in nature for the happiness and perfection that was created by God full of unknown life. To South Africans, you have not seen the world if you have not even traveled in your own country! Africa is so blessed to have the big 5, sunsets, night skies filled with stars and most of all we have all countries in one ranging from deserts, oceans, forests, city life, mountains, flat plains and vast wildlife . Appreciate every detail and be inspired in your own life of colour.

A dream job would be to work with Davaid Attenborough from National Geographic’s Planet Earth series. Wow!

Tonight is the Lunar Eclipse that happens rarely when the moon passes behind the earth so that the sun’s rays do not strike the moon. This can occur when the Sun, Earth and Moon are aligned . Hence there is always a full moon the night of the Lunar Eclipse… Making it so wonderful, not half moon, quarter but full moon, making the event so much more special to see and photograph. It is said that the Lunar Eclipse is to occur tonight around 8pm CAT, and is to last for a rare 2 hours! How exciting!

I cannot wait to photograph this spectacular event, get my tripod out,my Nikon and Bausch & Lomb Criterion 4000 1200mm telephoto mirror lens on a winters night in South Africa, living out on the farms is perfect and away from city lights that might disturb the night sky.
