Some amazing shots and colours in there.

Take nothing but litter, leave nothing but a cleaner Drakensberg.

Two reasons. The have a typical mountain profile, the kind that we all grew up on by taking the lid off the chocolate box, 'a la Matterhornish'. It always looks good to have spires and v shaped peaks, which is why it is always difficult to get escarpment Berg shots that really look dramatic, not saying we should try to copy that look, but it does work. Secondly, there is, from what i can see a lot of post processing going on in some of the images, use of subtle hdr and luminosity masks, which certainly allow one to highlight certain colours without blowing out the others. They are really stunning though!

Some of those colours do look a bit unnatural. In terms of colours what the Berg really has going for it are those glowing red sunrise colours which are especially good if you are camping on the Little Berg and the High Berg cliffs light up above you.

To true, especially if there is a nice large tarn to reflect them in. I also like the autumn grasses when they catch the red sunrise, higher mountain areas just have moraines and rocks with little vegetation. So we are fortunate we aren't to high up altitude wise.
