As the description states, this was taken on the Drakensberg, around 3000m above sea level. The Drakensberg is the only place in South Africa where it snows occasionally during winter.

This photo was taken on 15 June, one day prior to the middle of the South African winter.

Some more info about it:

Stimulating pictures...as iftaken from eagle's nest : )

I liked your use of foreground in both pictures; layers of rocksdiagonallyoverlappingin the first one and rough hilly terrain stretching to the horizon in the second one.By experience, Ican say thatthe dynamic range isue in digital cameras becomes more evidentin the mountains (the reason I went hdr) !! Still,some use of shadow/highlight tool @PS won't hurt, imo,for these photos; )

Cheers,

Bahadır

(Sent a reply yesterday. Didn't show? Anyhow: great, great pictures.)

Goethe like. Über alle Gipfeln ist Ruh.

You even have the ambition and ability to offer the viewers safe places to put their feet. Very strong romantic pictures
