Mtshabezi Dam…


Built in a long narrow valley, Mtshabezi Dam is long and deep. These two photos are taken in the bright overhead sunlight, in the mid day.


It was a bit later, when I took this one:


Fishermen, who brave the road with their boats, launch just in front of where I was standing.


I really like this rock (above)with the trees growing out of them. I tried to line it up with another interesting rock in the foreground, but it just didn’t gel. I’ll try again when I get the boat into the water.


The trees are beginning to shed their leaves and that orange, is actually leaves, not flowers.



I liked the stark white of this dead tree – taken in the late afternoon light. Im thinking someone good at manipulating RAW images might have fun with it.







These last images were taken with fading light.

  1. In 1956 I bought sub division D of Florencedale Farm which had the Mtshabezi flowing through ( no dam in those days ) with the dam wall site on the boundary.
    There were rumours of the prospect of a dam at the time.
    I sold the property just after UDI
