Irrigation

As usual one can be sure that if you irrigate your garden after some dry and warm weeks; it will rain within hours. I irrigated the garden last night and yes; a few hours after we got blessings from the sky …

Anyway during the ‘sunset irrigation’ I made a B&W and a FC picture and combined the two of them in Photomatix Pro. After that some processing in Topaz and Perfect Suite 8 and this is the result. Not exactly what I was aiming for (the blues should be more accentuated) but for the moment it will do.

Little Karoo Sunrise (6 pictures)

There are people who find ‘spiritual enlightment’ in a decorated (bit of paint, a few candles) pig stable in McGregor in South Africa and if they are happy with it … fine with us. They pay a little fortune for that and that is fine for the owner … 😉

We went budget friendly into the mountains somewhere in the hot and dry Little Karoo and disappeared in emptiness …..

Winter Green

Just a few shots along the provincial road nearby. The Western Cape is a Winter rainfall area with relatively dry Summers. The fresh green is what most people expect during Spring. Here you can experience that during Winter. And also the local wood logger is in the green.
