Camping Under the Stars

This image comes to us by Tanja Schmitz from the Drakensberg Amphitheatre, high in the Drakensberg Mountains in South Africa. At 10 times the size of Yosemite’s El Capitan cliff face, this location is clearly one of the greatest cliff faces on Earth. The cliff stretches over 3 mi. (5k) with its highest point reaching more than 10,000 ft. (3,050 meters) above sea level; just a fantastic image and location.

I want to highlight that Tanja and husband Cory have started a great new site called Photographing Space and their “Every New Moon” project which is great because it’s loaded with tutorials and of course, amazing images like this. I’m really enjoying their new Snapchat feed to catch the action ream-time. I put all the necessary links below so make sure you check em out and show your support.
