Spent the day touring the interior while in South Africa… traveled to this small town North of Johannesburg called Barberton.

The Jacaranda trees… were just breathtaking as it was Spring and they were in all their glory.Yes they really are this color!

I had mentioned to our freinds who lived in SA… I wanted to see a typical rural, everyday life town… wanted to see the trees, flora and landscape of this awesome country… aside from the Game Reserves and the idealistic imiage South Africa holds… experience down home, everyday South Africa.

Thanks for viewing my photography.

I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.
Thanks for viewing my work
