Sandra Mercer’s life-long passion for wildlife and nature is clearly evident in this wonderful display of photographs, taken during her frequent visits to Kruger National Park over the past few years.
Her purpose for publishing this book was to portray the timelessness, enduring beauty, solitude and serenity of the Kruger National Park and in so doing she has captured the very essence and breathlessness of a part of untamed Africa.
What is very noticeable about the Park is the ever-changing scenery, not only seasonally, but also from year to year. One never knows what to expect especially after floods, droughts and fires.
From early morning sunrises, to wildlife going about their daily routines, one is mesmerised by the splendour of the trees and paths and overwhelmed by the seemingly endless grasslands, water and landscape panoramas. The late afternoon vistas and sunsets leave one awestruck.
“A Scenic View of Kruger National Park” is a celebration of the true Spirit of Africa. This work by Sandra Mercer should be an inspiration to all of us to take time out of our busy lives, to enjoy and appreciate Earth’s natural wonders and to absorb their greatness into our very Souls.
“Once Africa is in your blood, it will remain forever in your heart and soul…...”
A Scenic View of Kruger National Park will be featured at the Frankfurt Book Fair in Frankfurt, Germany, on October 10-14, 2012.
About the Author
Sandra was born and raised in Harare, Zimbabwe where she enjoyed a happy, loving childhood, holidaying extensively in Zimbabwe and South Africa with her family. She developed an interest in photography from an early age and has an inherent love of nature, especially animals.
In 1982, Sandra immigrated to Pietermaritzburg in South Africa, where she married and had a son, Justin, in 1989.
Sandra was reflecting on her life’s purpose about two years ago and decided how wonderful it would be to share her passion for natural beauty and wildlife with others. She and her partner, Basil, had visited Kruger National Park frequently over the past fourteen years and during this time Sandra had collected a substantial number of photographs. It was then that she realized that she would publish this album and in so doing leave a legacy for others to appreciate in years to come.
