Jagged beach

The beautifully jagged rock formations at the coast near Storms River Mouth. The lichen on the rocks make them extraordinarily colorful, especially in combination with the blue water in the tidal pools. The first leg of the famous Otter Trail passes this stretch of coastline.

Bushbuck at sea at sunrise

Some photos just feel like an invitation into a fairy land… I was hunting for shots of the sunrise in Storms River Rest Camp when I startled this female bushbuck awake. She got up from the bushes and looked at me. What an amazing moment!

Painted dogs

African wild dogs, also known as painted dogs, are among Africa’s most endangered species. There are probably around 6,000 animals left in the wild. It’s therefore always a blessing to see them, like here at sunset in South Luangwa National Park, Zambia.

Rise and shine

This morning we waited for the sun to rise on a hill overlooking Pretoria. It didn’t happen. It’s still cold and grey outside. Luckily, this is a tradition, and three years ago we were here too, so I give you an old photo. Meanwhile we trust that the rising of the sun – even though it happened behind the clouds – marks a new day and new life. Happy Easter!
