Using BLUE in this body of work represents the integral parts of this reserve- the following water and the beautiful sky. This color is synonymous with open spaces, freedom, imagination, inspiration, and sensitivity. Mount Camdeboo has all of these elements.

I did indeed left a part of
my heart with you.
Limited Edition Cyanotype Prints available upon request. 50% of sales are donated back to Mount Camdeboo.
These prints are called cyanotypes.
The cyanotype process is also known as sun-printing was invented by Sir John Herschel. However, Anna Atkins, the first female photographer, used this technique with plants for the book Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions (1843). The paper is treated with ferric ammonium citrate and potassium ferricyanide. Once the paper and, in this case – a digital negative are exposed to sunlight and then washed in water, the uncovered areas of the paper turn to a dark blue; these prints are one-of-kind.
