I really value my sleep, so those early morning get-up-and-go-shoot things don’t always excite me. And worse at 5 AM when the weather is frosty, but this was so very worth it. Dunkeld Country Estate is a picturesque getaway in Dullstroom that lights up with life at this time of year, in an absolute profusion of wild reds and radiant oranges. By contrast, the forest becomes elegant and mysterious as soon as the sun sinks below the horizon.
Major photo cred to the talented Nathan Ribeiro for some of these shots.
