Drakensberg, South Africa by Elizabeth Kendall


Available to buy on…

In the mountains, the shortest way is from peak to peak: but for that you must have long legs Friedrich Nietzsche quotes
The Drakensberg (Afrikaans: Drakensberge, Dutch: Drakensbergen, “the Dragon Mountains”) is the highest mountain range in Southern Africa, rising to 3,482 metres (11,424 ft) in height. In Zulu, it is referred to as uKhahlamba (“barrier of spears”), and in Sesotho as Maluti (also spelled Maloti). Its geological history lends it a distinctive character amongst the mountain ranges of the world. Geologically, the range resembles the Simien Mountains of Ethiopia. (Info: Wikipedia)
ART: Paletteknife
This is painted from my imagination: paletteknife and oil.
