A Misty Table View in March….

Even when it is misty the beach is still a beautiful place to spend some time.

When we got to Table View one could hardly see the Mountain, but that changed after a while and we had clear blue skies…

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

Quick photo stop at Vygeboomdam

During school holidays my boyfriends daughter come visit us. I always try to take her out at least twice a week.

Although I have alot of editing work waiting at home I also take my camera with and well you guessed it make some more edit work for myself. But it is worth it. To see her running around, exploring and when she sees something the way her little face lit up is priceless…

Vygeboomdam is not that big and although the sign says no fishing the people don’t care they do just as they please… It is no wonder there were only a handful of ducks to see.

It is no wonder they say humans are the most dangerous animals on earth. Some humans have only their own interest at heart and do not think how their actions impacts nature around them.

What to do when loadshedding start….

In the beginning of the year we had a lot of loadshedding. One Sunday afternoon we decided to braai and tried to pass the time. Every session was around 2 hours. It was a hot day and much cooler outside.

I took my camera out and started taking photos of the birds in the trees and of the sky…..

Here is some of the photos taken of the birds in the trees…. I also played around with the settings that is why some of the sky is lighter and others darker.

My favorite part of the evening was when I started taking photos of the ever changing clouds… See if you can spot the smiley face in the clouds…

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work and I look forward to hearing from you.

I was very happy to be on my way back to Cape Town. I don’t think Durban and surroundings will see me again during December I’ll rather visit in July. The humidity and storms were just one to many for me. When I saw this scene I just had to take a photo.  I used my Blackberry.

Project 365 Photo a day: 365/202 – October Rain

It is Mid October and still raining. The best of all there are snow on the mountains. Unfortunately I could not photograph it because of all the clouds.

I took my camera with when I went to pick up the boys at school this afternoon. It was raining the whole time. When I was in school many moons ago in October we were swimming and had a stunning tan already.

The sky is suppose to be blue

Project 365 Photo a day: 365/100

My Photo of the day for 9 July 2012 is a cloud we saw at day break. The Black and White Photo does not do it justice but I post it anyway.

We left Bloemfontein at 22h30 and drove all night. As we drove through  Touwsriver on route to De Doorns when we saw  this breath taking photo. The cloud looked like it was on fire. I took out my camera and this was my first photo of the day and also THE PHOTO OF MY DAY.

I must  be honest with you, I was very happy to be back in the Western Cape. Don’t get me wrong I had a lovely holiday with lovely photo opportunities, but nothing beats home…

Project 365 Photo a day 365/14

This morning while I was busy posting my inspirational photo for the day my husband phoned me and said if I want to catch a beautiful dawn breaking I must go outside immediately.

Well I was still in my PJ’s but what the hell I grabbed my camera , called Lian (who grabbed the other camera) and head outdoors.  When we got outside I could see it but the houses are in the way so we walked to the end of our Cul de Sac…. Yes barefoot and in my PJ’s what a girl will do for a WOW photo… But unfortunately the houses were still in the way and the photo opportunity disappeared…. We were too late. Disappointed we turned around and there I saw this lovely marshmallow cloud and the Pigeons  sitting in the tree waiting for my dad to feed them.
