New Beginnings

Water cleanses, which is why a river in flood to me symbolises a new beginning; a clean slate, a fresh start, and getting rid of all the debris that clogs up life.

Depicted here is the Shingwedzi River and its tributaries in flash flood through the Kruger National Park, South Africa, following a cloudburst.

      Thank you friends!

      For all our accomplishments as humans, any force of nature – floods, fires, storms, earthquakes, have your pick – quickly makes us realise how small we actually are… I can still remember standing on the bridge over the Shingwedzi in flood, taking pictures, how the massive structure was actually trembling beneath us – scary stuff!
