A Cold Photo Essay
Every once in a while I get to shoot something other than the usual murder, politics and mayhem. The first “real” snow of the year covered the Western Cape mountain regions as if it was Christmas in Lapland. Well for this boy from sunny Africa who use to get exited when I helped my mother scrape off the ice out of our freezer, it was a winter wonderland.
After my initial track up the mountain trails to find people playing in the snow, the clouds opened up towards the Alp like peaks in the back and I was treated to a view that took my breath away. I wondered around the farms and found this frozen bath tub that was used as a watering hole for livestock. Not a very newsworthy image from an editors point of view but from a photographic perspective, this was my photo of the day.
