I couldn't help myself going back to that waterfall and pond we splashed in on the previous day. Taking a little morning stroll only with my camera backpack this was really "Me-Time".Surrounded by nature and the smell of salty water in the air, I climbed up to the fall, which was covered unfortunately in shadow on the day before and now. The only "achievement" was a lost lens cap after jumping over a cliff, the camera first bumping against a rock.
Besides that I made a major mistake not telling the others about my early morning stroll intention, so they did not know where I was. My suggestion, its nice to be allone with nature, but stick to the rules of hiking cameraderie.
Back at the Ngubu Hut Camp, my sister was already waiting with breakfast. What a nice gesture. She knows me and was not worried about her brothers absence at all.

Seen from the saddle of Schilderkrans, this is a perfect example how nature always strives for minimal effort.
The foliage of the shrubbs and little trees are aligned with the main wind direction blowing up the hill. Stepping a little back gave me the opportunity to shot this nice green carpet.
