Thirteen Formative Years

HOLIDAYS Ė Drakensberg: During my July 1962 climbing trip to the Mont-aux-Sources area, I took what I regard as the best photograph Iíve ever taken in the Drakensberg. Itís of Dave Dodds standing on a small rise above the frozen Tugela river, focussing his Hasselblad camera in order to take a picture of the sun as it rose above a solid layer of clouds beneath the Mont-aux-Sources escarpment. (Incidentally, Dave moved his camera further back a short while later, straddled the frozen river, and took the photograph that was used on the cover of his book, A Cradle of Rivers: The Natal Drakensberg, which has already been featured in this web-album.)
