Gauteng is not really known for its grand landscape, rolling green hills or eye catching mountains, but opportunities do present themselves for the photographer. With incredible summer thunderstorms, Gauteng is a wonderful place to live to take advantage of that, and follow the change in seasons bringing with it these immensely violent conditions.
A lone boat floats silently on the Vaal dam, as fading sunlight casts its beautiful colours onto clouds overhead, reflected in the water. To me this image represents solitude, silence and serenity, feelings I often savour when out in the wilderness of Africa exploring and capturing its essences.
A surprising snow storm swept across the Gauteng Highveld, clearing out the air and leaving a fresh, crisp atmosphere not very often felt here. The snow melted quickly, but amazing cloud formations streaked across the sky at sunset, mirroring the diagonals of the foreground dirt road.
The rising sun illuminates cloudy skies over farmlands and the distant mountains of the Suikerbosrand.
The Lonely Cosmos
Strikingly beautiful yet abundant on the highveld, a lone Cosmos flower stands proud under a broody sky as the last rays of sunset light cast beautiful warm hues onto the farmland landscape.
Powerful electrical thunderstorms rip through the skies of the highveld, so typical of summer here in Johannesburg. The enormous amount of light from the ground illuminates the heavy storm clouds and rain in hues of pinks and oranges.
Heavy fog rolls across the metropolis of Johannesburg, shrouding the sky-line as the first rays of dawn tinge the atmosphere.

Self Portrait Before The Storm
Late afternoon sunset light peers through heavy clouds behind me, casting rays onto falling rain creating the rainbow and silhouetting my profile perfectly down the farmland road.
