The Madonna at Twilight

The Madonna at Twilight

Drakensberg Escarpment, South Africa

The basalt cliffs of the Drakensberg Escarpment are impressive, but near the top of that list is this formation high up in the Mweni area at Fangs Pass. Termed the Madonna and Her Worshippers, these seemingly small spires or peaks are in fact at least the height of ten busses. Heavy snowfall adds dramatic character to this landscape as stars faintly glow signalling night fall.
