Wow....small world! I grew up in Pietermaritzburg. Working there too now.
I spend a lot of time in the Drakensberg, hiking and climbing. That's where my enjoyment of photography really took off. D800 is perfect for those mountain landscapes. Finally a DSLR with enough resolution and colour depth to surpass Velvia
I need to get more organised and post a few of the pics in my gallery.
