Photographer's Note

Rosetta situated in the Natal Midlands - South Africa originated as a small farming town. Rosetta became an integral part of the colonial farm-pioneering boom of the mid-to- late 1800s, Rosetta 's future looked more secure in 1895 when Natal authorities built the Meshlyn Bridge and finally secured a place on the map a year later with construction of its still-standing hotel.
Rosetta is surrounded by modern smallholdings, the village centre today features Crispin's Corner, a small shopping centre where - in addition to locally produced handicrafts history buffs may find that significant piece in its antique shop. Rosetta is part of the Midlands Meander a major tourist attraction in the area.
Rosetta is a little shy of 500kms from Johannesburg and a very popular weekend destination for all Joburgers. We really had quite an interesting weekend with some of the most beautiful landscapes around that you get to see in South Africa. However the sky started to change just as we were about to start for Durban and yes, a heavy downpour followed soon.
