Firstly, just to say thanks to all those that commented and viewed last night's upload. I'm overwhelmed.

The Ampitheatre at Royal Natal are the highest Peaks in the Drakensberg range. Hence the title. Shooting into the sun was a bit tricky. I would stand off to one side and cast a shadow over the filter holder to avoid lens flare. I'm still determined to upload a Landscape version. Maybe tomorrow !!!

Thanks again.

Bruce.

Wonderful work, Bruce. I love the low viewpoint and the way my eye is drawn from the foreground rocks, to the beautiful rushing water, along the river and to the mountains beyond. Stunning.
