Greetings from Napier (36 pictures to tease you)

Where I like to be:

In 2000 we emigrated from The Netherlands to South Africa but only the past 2 years we are really enjoying ourselves in home-sweet-home-in-Napier in the Overberg region in the Western Cape. Not that we did not enjoy the years before but there is a difference.

Napier and direct surrounds are a photographer’s paradise; there is no area in the Western Cape with such an intensity of ever changing light colours; rain or shine. Wonderful layered landscapes unfold themselves; the change of the seasons, the challenge of getting lost in the ‘outback’….. You name it.

Napier is a place to discover; especially the surrounding landscapes. Pity that hardly any traveller, between the tourist hotspots of Cape Town and Cape Agulhas turn off the main road to get lost….. Or should I be happy about that?


Our little town

Let me take you on a photographic journey through our little town; Napier, Western Cape South Africa. On first sight it looks a bit dull but underneath a lot of activity; a guy who makes working miniature steam engines; a chess board maker a designer jeweller to mention a few and they all have customers from all over the world. I’m not going to introduce all those artisans but just show you around a bit.
