Good Day: 17 January 2022

Good day friends,

Hope everyone had a good night’s rest. If you are only going to bed now or a bit later, wishing you a peaceful night’s rest.

I got up at 5:10 AM this morning. On Friday I decided to visit Botterblom Nature Reserve today to kick off my Parks and Nature Reserves Project for 2022.

Beautiful morning at Botterblom Nature Reserve

It was a beautiful cool morning with no wind at all. When I got to Botterblom, I walked around to see what was new and interesting. The park is very dry and even the pond’s water level has dropped significantly. I did not spot any of the Red Knobbed Coots and the Egyptian Geese wasn’t there either. The only birdlife I saw was the Helmeted Guinea fowl families and some Sparrows and Weavers.

Route Walked while exploring and capturing the flowers and plants.

I started a second project today. I am going to photograph the same tree monthly for 1 year. I have Second tree in mind, but I will capture it on Wednesday morning.

First angle. Not happy with this one, blending in with trees in background
Second Angle. I prefer this one. Still need to work on the angle so that the tree is separated from the background.

According to the weather forecast, we are having a hot day. With a maximum temperature of 29°C and winds up to 28 km/h.
