Berghoff Fynbos Farm Part 10 of 10

Well it has been an absolute pleasure sharing our weekend at Berghoff Fynbos Farm with you all here on my blog.

Here’s a few more photo’s I took before heading back home…

We had a awesome time although on our way back home Mornè’s car broke. I would not recommend that you go to visit in a normal sedan. Normal cars are not made to withstand that bumpy road. Don’t get me wrong if the roads were in better condition even though it is a dirtroad I would surely visit more often. Unfortunately I do not have a 4×4 or a vehicle that can take the punch.

So to sum up the only reason at this stage that is keeping me from going back is the road. I am not afraid of dirt roads and I love driving on them but the damage and costs involved to fix your car is just too much.

The views on your way back are absolutely stunning….

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work and I look forward to sharing more of my travels with you.

On our walk back Lian just wanted to climb the rockformations. It was very hot and he did not have sufficient water with him. Also it is not safe to do it alone.

I continued taking photos of the beautiful landscapes, rockformations and flowers on the farm.

Lian did get to climb a rock and when he got back he told us that it was very hot near the rocks.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Hope you are enjoying the walk on Berghoff Fynbos Farm with us.

During our walk we saw a “fountain” or so we thought anyway. When we got closer and saw the pipes on the ground we figured out that our “fountain” is just a broken pipe.

That did not stop us from taking advantage of it to cool down before we start walking again.

Desiree did not want to get wet and Dad and Armand dragged her in the water. She laughed so much it did not take them long before she was soaked. We had such a laugh.

I am very glad that my boys are so close with their Grandfather and both of them reminds me alot of my Father. They love playing tricks on people and can be very naughty in a good way of course.

Rockformations is one of my weaknesses. I always try to see what it looks like. At Berghoff Fynbos Farm there was no shortage of different Rockformations…

Nothing beats a glass of gin, cranberry juice and tonic while sitting and enjoying the sounds and views before sunset….

Birds calling to one another while getting ready for bed… Even the insects are more noisy than during the day…

Then there is my dad collecting extra wood so that we can make a “geselsvuurtjie” as he calls it. Let me explain this is the fire that is made after the food is finished and we all gather around the fire and sit and talk… These are precious times that I will cherish for the rest of my life….

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.

Yellow….

Yellow reminds me of the sun my favorite fruit bananas and also lemons…

On the spectrum of visible light yellow lies between orange and green.

Yellow is also associated with different feelings in different countries and cultures.

Yellow is the color people most often associate with amusement, gentleness, humor,wisdom, happiness, glory, wisdom, and spontaneity. Yellow can also be associated with negative feelings like envy, jealousy, cowardice and sickness.

In photography you get to work closely with this color when editing and fine tuning you photos.

Thank you for taking the time to look at my work. Please feel free to comment and like my post.

Pink…

Pink is a color between red and white on the color spectrum. The color got it’s name from a flower also called Pinks.

Pink is the color most often associated with charm, politeness, sensitivity, tenderness, sweetness, childhood, femininity and the romantic.

A combination of pink and white is associated with innocence.

We also wear a pink ribbon for Cancer awareness and here in South Africa National sport teams also wear pink for Cancer awareness.

I love pink, but I am not a big fan in wearing light colors. I would rather wear darker colors.

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

Krishnan Family Shoot

While I was on holiday I had the pleasure  to capture the Krishnan family.  Yes yes I know when you are on holiday you are suppose to rest, but I love my job so much I just could not resist booking this photo shoot.

I did not know the area but I was told that the Krishnan family had a lovely garden and that I would be able to take photo’s there.  I must admit I was worried when we drove to Benoni the greenest green was brown… Every thing is brown and it did not look very inviting or beautiful.

When we arrived at the Krishnan family the first thing that I looked for was grass, trees or shrubs anything with a bit of green. I was in luck….

Here ‘s some of the photo’s taken at their photo shoot.
