FINALIST 2: Snow Patrol
Photography: Louis Uys Location: Sutherland Vehicle: Defender 90 A snowy set of wheels, Wit Blikkie (White Can), as this Defender is affectionately referred to by the Uys family and friends, departed on its first off-road trip as clean as the day it was shipped from Solihull. “The maiden voyage was from Cape Town to Marcuskraal 4x4, Cederberg and Sutherland (via R356). “This introduced Wit Blikkie to dust, rocks and gravel roads and the most beautiful display of stars in the clear Sutherland sky. Waking up in Sutherland must have been quite a shock though, as Africa was covered in a thick snow blanket. The picture was taken on the Verlatenkloof pass before heading back to Ceres with a generous serving of Karoo mud and puddles. What a welcome,” says Louis.
