St Helena Bay 2010

I was going through some of my files on my external hard drives and came across a whole folder of unedited photo’s of 2010/2011.

We went to St Helena Bay in December 2010 where we visited with my parents in law. That weekend Armand fell himself into hospital  on the first day we got there. He got 6 stitches in his knee…

All of these photo’s were taken with my Canon 500D and till today I love this camera.

My Photography Breakaway August 2011: Part 5

On the last day before I returned home Jackie and I went to Jacobsbaai a small little town situated between Vredenburg and Saldanhabaai. There are a few stories to how Jacobsbaai got it’s name. One of these is that the English king entrusted the piece of land to a local known as ‘Jacob.’

I found Jacobsbaai very peaceful. The whole town has dirt roads this help to keep the speeding at bay. While driving from one little beach to the next we spotted the following birds, African Stone Chat, Southern Black Koraan, Egret’s and Kittlitz’s Plover.  The little fisherman’s boats all over the town gives it a small fishing community feel.

The show of wildflowers was absolutely a feast for the eye.  The most beautiful scenery  yellow, white, orange  and a spot of pink here and there. When you go down on your knees you see the bed of flowers and the blue water of the ocean.

Even the local animals are so friendly.  When Jackie and I got out the car to go and take some photo’s on one of the beaches a little Dutchound  came to greet us. As Jackie was taking photo’s he went and sit on her lap. It was so adorable.

Before we returned home we made a quick stop at Bokkomlaan  and then when we turned onto the road to St Helena Bay we saw a lovely rainbow. A perfect ending to a perfect photography Breakaway…

Thank you Jackie and Steven for a lovely time….
