Loadshedding a perfect excuse for an outing.

Nothing cheers me up like a walk in nature.

We had loadshedding again this afternoon from 2:00pm till 4:30pm. I had 3 options, catch up on some sleep, take Willow for a walk, or go and recapture this mornings flower photos.

Yes, this mornings handheld photos with my 18-55mm lens was one big disaster I started going through it and had to delete about 90% of the photos. I definitely do not have a steady hand…

But like I said next time I will double check before I start using any lens handheld.

Well we were not supposed to have loadshedding but like always Eskom knows just how to cheer me up by giving me 2 hours to go and explore more locations.

I have done a few family and portrait portfolio shoots at the Majik Forrest in the past.

Today was the first time I explored it a little bit. My oldest and his girlfriend came with and she showed me a few different paths I can take. I was blown away by all the different compositions, not even mentioning all the wildflowers.

I willbe returning there this weekend if the weather permits. I want to capture the wildflowers. The trees, moss and other compositions will still be there a month or two from now.

Here is just a few photos I took on our walk today. Willow enjoyed the water a lot.

I am not sure if I will take her in the forest again, I will rather stick to my normal route when I take her. She was covered in ticks. Not sure if there is a tick repellent for dogs.

That’s all for now friends. I am heading to bed early again need to go back to Botterblom in the morning to see if I can find all the blurry flowers.

Good night, Sweet dreams
