Wallpapers

After posting some of his photographs on Twitter and Facebook, Deon received numerous requests from readers to download the pix for use as desktop wallpapers. He promised to make them available, so here they are.

The photographs were taken in and around Loxton in the Upper Karoo region of South Africa, where Deon has a weekend retreat (and his character Lemmer has a home), as well as Stellenbosch, and Cape Town.


What camera?

All the photographs on this page were taken with a Canon 5DMark III. Deon prefers the Canon EF 24-70mm f/2.8L II USM lens for landscape photography, because of it's versatility, but also uses the Canon EF 24mm f/1.4L II USM Lens.

He processes his photographs in Adobe Lightroom, and uses Nik Software's Color Efex Pro, and Dfine, as well as HDR Efex Pro for HDR composites.
