My photo of the day for 3 July 2012 was the mountains at Alpine Heath at sunrise. It looked absolutely stunning.
I woke up at 6 O’Clock that morning and waited for Ronald’s alarm to go off. After snoozing a bit I got dressed and went outside to see what activity there is in the early morning. Not much I must add. I think all the animals and birds were waiting for the sun’s warm rays to give some heat. It was freezing outside.
The warm rays of the sun surely help to highlight the red colour of the mountains. I took a few experimental photo’s also but will share that at a later stage.
Today hubby suggested that we take our car for a drive to charge the battery. The first thing that I grabbed was my camera. I got my photo of the day that I already shared with you.
All the photo’s was taken at one spot. Hubby stopped at the Antique Tractor on the R304 a spot well known to us. We were practicing for the Argus Cycle tour one year when our tandem got a flat just there….
So I decided to take some photo’s of the tractor that from the outside looked like it was standing on the wall. I took photo’s from different angles and then I saw the gate was open I walked inside and took a photo of the tractor on pillars…
Outside the gate of the Antique Tractor a mother and her little daughter were sitting. She laughed at hubby sitting in the car, but she would not even give me a little smile. I took some photo’s of her but she just looked at me emotionless. I wonder what went through that little head. Mental note to self. Always keep some sweets in the car maybe I’ll be lucky and get a smile next time…
After having some car trouble this week and the fact that the battery went flat hubby jumped started the car and we went for a drive. I took my camera with just in case I see something that I would like to share with you all.
When I saw the snow on the mountains my mind was made up. I want do share a landscape photo with you all today.
