CAMPING UNDER THE MILKY WAY

14-264

Image Credit & Copyright: Cory Schmitz.

This image was captured by Cory Schmitz while camping 3,100 m (10,170 ft.) above sea level, near the lip of Tegula/Thekula falls and roughly 10 m (33 ft.) from the edge of one of the most incredible cliff faces on Earth; the Drakensberg Amphitheatre in South Africa.

This natural wonder of the world is located in the Royal Natal National Park in the KwaZulu Natal province.  The Amphitheatre dwarfs Yosemite’s Half Dome & El Capitan at a massive 5k (3.1 miles) in length and 1,200 m (3,900 ft.) high.  Run an image search of this location (or go there) and check it out in daylight as well because it’s truly an amazing area.

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed writing it.  If you want more information and image choices hit Cory’s links below and go wild!  Please feel free to let me know what you think as comments are always welcome and if you wish follow me on my blog DanSpace77.com and Twitter @DanSpace77.
