SQ1 Photograph Blog
Working in South Africa, SQ1 is lucky enough to visit many beautiful and amazing locations for our profession. Often times, we are asked to take the
photographs that we use in our web designs and graphic designs. We thought we would share some of these amazing sights from South Africa with all of you.

January 20, 2009 - Potholes

Bourkes Luck Potholes is an stunning natural wonder of South Africa's famous panorama route. As you can see in this photograph the rushing rivers of the Blyde River Canyon have swirled in a circular motion on these rocks for many years. This process has created the large potholes in the bedrock. They were named "lucky" by Tom Bourke who was convinced the area would yield a large gold deposit. Although there was not much gold to be found in the potholes themselves, they did turn out to be quite lucky, as they were located right next to a huge gold deposit.

December 27, 2008 - Tree Fern

Near Mac Mac Falls in Mpumalanga, South Africa we came across an area that had been wiped clean by a massive bush fire. This seemed an interesting photographic subject so we walked through the area taking many pictures. Our most interesting subject turned out to be this tiny treen fern that had begun to grow and replace the others that had burned in the fire. This is an attempt at capturing life and death in the same frame.

December 9, 2008 - Wild Horses

A truly amazing sight of the Lowveld in Mpumalanga, South Africa are the wild horses of Kaapschehoop. These magnificent animals roam freely throughout the small town and have so for many years. It remains a bit of a mystery where the herd came from. Some maintain the herd could have originated from the release of pit ponies as much as several hundred years ago. What is truly remarkable is how they have survived in this area for so long, in often harsh conditions and were able to cope with dangerous predators such as lion.

December 5, 2008 - Baboons

South Africa's wildlife is one of her greatest treasures and the crown jewl of this treasure would have to be the Kruger National Park. Since tourism is such a large industry in South Africa we often have the privilage of creating websites for that industry. This is always a pleasure because it means we get to spend more time in and around Kruger Park taking photos. Here is a photo we captured fairly early in the morning of some baboons who had recently added a new addition to their troop.

November 28, 2008 - Lisbon Falls

Located along the beautiful Panorama Route in Mpumalanga, South Africa, Lisbon Falls is truly a remarkable sight. One of the largest waterfalls in Mpumalanga, Lisbon Falls measures 92m high and is surrounded by a fantastic landscape of indigenous trees. The light was truly perfect for this shot. We were fortunate enough to be there at just the right time of day and have the sun at a nice angle to capture this shot. It almost produces a glowing effect off the cascading falls.
