A hobby photographer, Chris Leggatt
(1989K) entered this picture in the
Africa Photo Awards in 2019, making

“A build-up of dry vegetation and the
proliferation of alien invasive plants
contributed to the devastating fires
on the Garden Route over the past

on the Outeniqua Mountains. At the
end of a long day of fire-fighting on
a friend’s farm, I took a moment to
capture the scene as the muted sun
backlit the smouldering blue gum
trees across the valley, while smoke
billowed from the depths below.”
