Stellenryk Park – Second Recce visit on 21 October 2021

As you know I am busy with a new Parks and Nature Reserve Photography Project and I am looking to photograph as many as possible within a 100km radius from my home.

Stellenryk Park is 6.3km from my home. We had our first recce visit on Sunday ,17 October 2021, and had to cut it short due to rain.

This morning I woke up early and saw the wind blowing through my window and I did not want to get out of bed to go on a recce in the cold wind. I tried to fall go to sleep again but I could not. I kept hearing the words of Thomas Heaton, “You have to be in it to win it.”

So I got out of bed, got dressed and Willow and I went to Stellenryk Park for a recce visit. It was cold and windy and I was very happy to wear my buff to help me keep warm.

We walked 1.06 km from the car to the end of the pathway and back to the car. I did not have the appropriate shoes on and could not wander from the pathway because it was really muddy. I think I am going to leave my water boots in the car from now on for times like these. The whole purpose of recce’s is to get to know the surroundings and learn from your mistakes.

I did spotted a few compositions I would like to photograph in the future. My next visit will be without Willow and I will be using my Tripod, my 70-300mm lens and 18-55mm lens. I want to be there at sunrise and maybe even a sunset. I am curious to see what type of light I will get at sunset.

Stellenryk Park – Recce visit on 17 October 2021

As you know I am busy with a new Parks and Nature Reserve Photography Project and I am looking to photograph as many as possible within a 100km radius from my home.

On Thursday I drove past this little woodland on route to Stodels Garden Centre. I never really thought about taking photos there in the past, but after watching all those Landscape and Woodland photography videos I am more aware of my surroundings.

When I got home I looked on Google Maps to see if I can identify it. There are pathways and I assumed it is a park or nature reserve. The notice boards are faded but according to Google Maps it is called Stellenryk Park and it is part of the Kuils River Corridor project.

Stellenryk Park is 6.3km from my home. I asked Morné if he would please accompany me for my recce visit. I was not sure if it is safe and I wanted to take the photos with my camera.

On our way there the light was awesome and it broke through a clear patch in the clouds and it looked absolutely gorgeous. When we got to the park the light died down, but I reminded myself that this is just a recce visit.

As soon as I got my camera out it started raining. I took a few photos in the rain just to see the density of the little woodland and if it will be possible to get the shot I have in mind. It started coming down real hard and we opted to rather go home. I have to go for my second vaccination tomorrow and do not want to get sick now.

I will go back one morning during the week with Willow and do a proper recce of the park and see if I can get more compositions from different angles. I also want to see what wildlife and wildflowers I can spot. I will be visiting this park at least once a month to document the changes.

With this last photo the rain came down hard and I got a few waterdrops on my lens. I only realized this when I got to the car.
