LOTENI - THE VERY LONG WAY ROUND





Three weekends ago a couple of us took off to the Drakensberg for the long weekend. Taking Monday off, as Tuesday was a public holiday, meant we got the chance to get some good solid rest. Getting up there was a mission though. Please note if you're thinking of visiting Loteni, whatever you do, take a 4x4. We did end up in a ditch on the side of the road, but after some choice navigation from yours truly and superb driving skills from my mate Jono we were out. We had no choice but to turn back and overnight with friends in Dargle. The following morning we were off early and made it through to our cottage. All in all, it was a simply amazing weekend. Two of the highlights were a waterfall swim in a sub-zero pool and taking an afternoon stroll down to the river. The valley was lit up with this golden winter light that rendered even the drabbest shrub ablaze. It was magical. I got to shoot a ton of images; mostly of my mates. These were my favourites from the remainder of the shots.

A swim in a sub-zero waterfall pool. Now why doesn't cool stuff like that happen to me?
