I generally prefer tele lenses to wide angle lenses. I just like the feeling of being able to bring what I see closer. Because tele lenses are often heavy, I have gotten used to bringing my 85mm lens with me when I go hiking. It has some tele-quality and is not too heavy. And when I see a landscape that I want to capture, I just take a few vertical shots and stitch them together in a panorama. Which is exactly how this landscape came to be!
The Sani Pass is the only route passable for motorvehicles that connects the east of Lesotho to Kwazulu-Natal in South Africa. The beginning of the Sani Pass road stands at 1544 meters, and at the top the height is 2876. Especially the final kilometers of the Pass are steep and tricky to drive – which is why only 4×4 vehicles are allowed on the road. In winter, parts of the road are always in the shadow, and streams of water turn into ice. A real adventurous journey!
A little bay along the St. Blaize’s trail near Mossel Bay. Such beautiful scenery!
