’n Foto van Kompasberg in die Sneeuberge naby Nieu-Bethesda in die Oos-Kaap van Suid-Afrika.

Die Sneeuberge is geleë in die noordwestelike hoek van die Oos-Kaap, Suid-Afrika, net noord van Nieu-Bethesda. Een van die hoogste pieke is die Kompasberg, 2502m hoog, die hoogste punt in die Groot-Karoo. Die naam is in 1778 deur kolonel Jakob Gordon en goewerneur Van Plettenberg gegee, wat die berg besoek het, aangesien die meeste van die aangrensende landskap van hierdie punt af opgemeet kon word. Die bergpiek is net noord van Nieu-Bethesda. Die Sondagsrivier ontspring naby Kompasberg.

The Sneeuberge (Afrikaans for Snow Mountains) are located in the far western portions of the Eastern Cape province of South Africa. They are the highest mountain range in South Africa outside the Drakensberg and stretch between Murraysburg of the neighbouring Western Cape, north of Graaff Reinet and almost to Cradock.
They are geologically part of the Karoo System and fall within the Karoo semi-arid climatic region. As their name suggests, the mountains experience frigid winters with occasional snowfalls during strong cold fronts. Summers are hot with some late afternoon thunderstorms in summer.
The highest peak is north of the small village of Nieu-Bethesda, called Kompasberg (2502m) (Afrikaans for Compass Mountain) and dominates all surrounding areas with its prominent steep-sided peak.

My husband and I live in Jansenville in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. We both love nature, and therefore most of my subjects are the incredible wealth of fauna and flora in Southern Africa. I also write poetry in Afrikaans (one of the eleven official languages in South Africa) and often combine these poems with the photos I’ve taken. Thank you for stopping by!
