1 September 2020: It’s Springtime in South Africa

We had much more rain than the previous 3 years. The flowers are stunning this year. My fiance and I visited the West Coast National park on 22 August 2020 and I was very happy to see that this year the fields are much more colorful. In 2018 my dad and I went and it was mainly Yellow flowers…. This year there is all the colors of the rainbow…

FOTD :6 August 2020 – Pronkharpuisbos Euryops speciosissimus

Over the weekend my fiance and I went on a work road-trip. He worked and I took photos. Practicing my new skills learned from the photography course I am busy with.

On our way back we stopped for some photos and I captured these beauties for the first time. I have taken thousands of flower photos over the years and never did I captured them. I saw them and thought it was just another daisy bush.

Flower of the day Challenge – 15 June 2020

Here is my flower photo for today. I don’t know what it is called. But I took it on our Grand Tour of Scotland in August 2019.

Dad and I took a walk before breakfast down the road from Knockhill Farm.

Thank you for stopping by.

Till next time.

Stay Safe.

Random photos of a March Lily

Hi everyone,

Just some photo’s I took of the March Lilies in our garden when it bloomed in March 2019. I took it over a period of two weeks.

This year it was beautiful and kept blooming for a while. Looking forward to see them again in 2020….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

Berghoff Fynbos Farm Part 10 of 10

Well it has been an absolute pleasure sharing our weekend at Berghoff Fynbos Farm with you all here on my blog.

Here’s a few more photo’s I took before heading back home…

We had a awesome time although on our way back home Mornè’s car broke. I would not recommend that you go to visit in a normal sedan. Normal cars are not made to withstand that bumpy road. Don’t get me wrong if the roads were in better condition even though it is a dirtroad I would surely visit more often. Unfortunately I do not have a 4×4 or a vehicle that can take the punch.

So to sum up the only reason at this stage that is keeping me from going back is the road. I am not afraid of dirt roads and I love driving on them but the damage and costs involved to fix your car is just too much.

The views on your way back are absolutely stunning….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work and I look forward to sharing more of my travels with you.

Berghoff Fynbos Farm Part 8 of 10

On our walk back Lian just wanted to climb the rockformations. It was very hot and he did not have sufficient water with him. Also it is not safe to do it alone.

I continued taking photos of the beautiful landscapes, rockformations and flowers on the farm.

Lian did get to climb a rock and when he got back he told us that it was very hot near the rocks.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Hope you are enjoying the walk on Berghoff Fynbos Farm with us.

Berghoff Fynbos Farm Part 5 of 10

After Breakfast we all went for a walk and I captured the most beautiful landscapes and flowers.

One thing my boys have gotten from me is they both also love nature and photography. At one point in their lives both wanted to persue a career in photography and believe me that was very flattering but I told them that they can always do photography combined with another career or as a paid hobby.

Both are persuing a career in IT and I am super proud of them.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work.

Berghoff Fynbos Farm Part 7 of 10

During our walk we saw a “fountain” or so we thought anyway. When we got closer and saw the pipes on the ground we figured out that our “fountain” is just a broken pipe.

That did not stop us from taking advantage of it to cool down before we start walking again.

Desiree did not want to get wet and Dad and Armand dragged her in the water. She laughed so much it did not take them long before she was soaked. We had such a laugh.

I am very glad that my boys are so close with their Grandfather and both of them reminds me alot of my Father. They love playing tricks on people and can be very naughty in a good way of course.

Rockformations is one of my weaknesses. I always try to see what it looks like. At Berghoff Fynbos Farm there was no shortage of different Rockformations…
