Sunrise above the clouds, an image that reminds me that the sun always shines behind the clouds! Even if you can't find the light or your days feel cloudy, I hope this is a reminder that the sun is always there and that there will be a moment when the sun finds its way back through the clouds and shine in its full glory.

This image was shot back in May 2012, when I just started learning photography. It's still one of my favorites. I remember waking up at 4 am to get ready for a hike to Sentinal Peak. We wanted to start hiking early – in the very dark – to reach Witches viewpoint before sunrise.

The walk-up to the viewpoint was heavy for me; I was out of breath. Probably because my body had to adjust to the altitude. I needed more short breaks, but luckily we arrived at the viewpoint in time, just before a perfect sunrise in one of the most beautiful UNESCO World Heritage Sites in South Africa.

The view was magnificent! To my excitement, a very thick mist inversion was present. The sunrise looked very promising and turned into one of my favorite images from the 4-day trip to Drakensberg Mountains.

Location: Drakensberg Mountains, South Africa

Why buy Limited Edition prints?

When you buy chain store artwork from bigger interior stores, you know that thousands of others have the same city scene, botanical print, or copy of a famous painting hanging in their home. Limited Edition photography makes it possible to own a valuable “few-of-a-kind” piece of art.

Certificate of Authenticity

Each Limited Edition artwork comes with an official Certificate of Authenticity, featuring a unique hologram patch matched by a unique number on both the print and the certificate, to ensure their value over time. This hologram sticker can be attached to the backend of the artwork once it’s framed.

Sustainably Sourced Paper

Each print is carefully crafted using one of the most beautiful and high-quality papers on the market, Hahnemühle Photo Rag® (Glicee).

A white artist paper with minimal texture and a chalky smooth cotton feel. Combined with the super matt finish, this paper produces outstanding prints that feature brilliant colours, deep blacks, striking contrasts and perfect reproduction of detail. Handle with care when mounting.
