The Word a week this week is Dawn. For more information on this challenge please visit the blog  A word in your ear

I took the following photo’s on our road trip in June/July 2010. My parents, the boys and I hit the road for 5 weeks while my hubby was working.  We called our tour the World Cup Tour. Everybody went from province to province to follow the soccer games. We went from province to province to do some sight seeing and visiting dear friends….

Every time we went to our next destination we woke up before dawn and hit the road. We saw the sun coming up in allot of different places and each time it  was spectacular….

I took these photo’s with my Canon 500D and back then I did not shoot RAW but JPG. Since then I’ve converted and only shoot in RAW.

Project 365 Photo a day: 365/100

Cloud at daybreak on route to De Doorns

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…
