Hermanus’ Marine Environment from Above

We take to the skies with photographer Jean Tresfon, for an aerial perspective of our greatest natural asset, the Overberg coastline.

African Conservation Photodestinations has featured Jean’s underwater photography, but in this portfolio in celebration of our magnificent coastline, he takes to the skies as an accomplished girocopter pilot and aerial photographer.

Our dependence on our coastline is often overlooked. We generally only ever see the ocean as we gaze out to see, seldom do we see the coastline from the ocean. The importance of this portion of the marine environment is brought to life when experienced from the air, looking “in”.
