Playing hide and seek…

Tortoises are more visible these days in The Westcoast National Park. Maybe it is just because they have grown and are bigger so one sees them better….

I was very lucky this time around they did not all head for the bushes when I got out to take some photo’s of the.

Thank you for stopping by. Have a Blessed day.

My Photo and quote by Jim Rohn

“The more you know the less you need to say.” Jim Rohn

Sometimes I wonder about this one. In some cases like for instance in my work I like to share my knowledge with others. I like to share what I know and taught myself over te past decade.

Then you get those circumstances where you know something about someone and you are waiting for them to come clean and be honest with you… You don’t let them know that you know what is going on…

A few years back I took my first photo of this tree on a hill on a day I that turned my whole world upside down and inside out. This tree is a constant reminder of that perticular day and that I knew something and was waiting for it to be confirmed….

What is your interpretation of this qoute?

Thank you for taking the time to read my blog.

“The use of traveling is to regulate imagination by reality, and instead of thinking how things may be, to see them as they are.” Samuel Johnson

Keep safe and keep traveling….

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

Bontebok…

I read on Instagram that in 1930 there were only 30 Bontebok left in the world….

According to Wikipedia they were killed as pests and at one stage only 17 existed.

Today Bontebok are only found in South Africa in protective areas like our Sanparks.

I was lucky and got a awesome photo opportunity when I visited The West Coast National Park and Potsberg in September last year. The Bontebok walked straight to my car like a model and looked straight into the lens….

At another spot I captured a few in a field. When I edited the photos I spotted a calf and his mom….

Flowers of Potsberg

While driving in Potsberg you spot a lot of beautiful flowers but one can’t really take nice photo’s from your car. One have to get out and get in close. Only then do you find hidden gems.

I tried to identify the flowers by going through my books. I use Wild Flowers of South Africa by Braam van Wyk, Field Guide to Wild Flowers of South Africa and also Field Guide to Fynbos by John Manning. My only problem is some of the photo’s are so small and some only taken from different angles than mine that I struggled to identify them 100%..

I can only blame myself too. At one stage I was quite clued up on my flower. But if you don’t refresh your mind every now and then one seems to forget… So I have just decided to work on this again. I have so many files with photo’s of flowers, plants and trees. Maybe I must start identifying them and get a expert who will be willing to help me. What do you think?

My bucket list as long as the N1…

In 95 days and 11 Hours dad and I will be on our way to Scotland. We are nearly all set only our visas that need to be done next week. Then the long wait will be upon us.

This will be my first time going abroad and I am super excited to scratch two things of my bucket list this year. Fly international and take a tour through Scotland.

I am 45 years old and have drawn up a bucket list of countries, towns and places I would like to visit… This will keep me very busy for quite a few years to come. Some people will look at me funny when they see it.

On my list there are alot of places here in South Africa. I used to travel alot in the past, but in life situations change and one has to make decisions on what is more important.

When dad got diagnosed with Maestina Gravis last year I had an eye opener and started working on my bucketlist. I told myself that I want to tick 3 of items every year…. My third item on my list will be to visit one of our local attractions.

Beautiful Landscapes of Potsberg

Potsberg has some of the most beautiful landscapes. I just love capturing them. During flowerseason it just take it to the next level…

In the past there were more colors visible but due to the drought we had the yellow flowers took over and only here and there you stil had patches of purple, pink and white flowers. Don’t get me wrong it is still awesome and I got some beautiful photos with Bontebok and Ostrich. These I will share at a later stage….

Due to the fact that my trigger finger worked overtime I need to split our Potsberg visit in 3 posts….

Thank you for stopping by my blog. Hope you enjoyed your visit. Please let me know what you think of my work. Have a Blessed week.

My Photo and Someone’s Quote

Choices…

Your worth…

Your worth consists in what you are and not in what you have… Thomas Edison

A few years back a colleague told me that I am worth much more and that I must start believing in myself and my abilities as a photographer.

For me this is very difficult. I am my own worst critic and sometimes I feel like my photo’s are not good enough it can still improve.

Even after 10 years in the industry I am still learning new skills. Trying to better myself for my client’s and potential clients…

I do have a goal and that is to sell my nature photos online…. But the big question is what do I think I am worth?

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Feel free to comment or like my post.
