A photograph made on the verandah facing Northeast with cloud covered Klein Rivier Mountains in the background.
….. clouds are piling up in our own ‘Smokey Mountains’ (Klein Rivier Mountains’). Still Autumn but Winter on its way. We are, however, privileged to live in a moderate climate with a year-round floral display in our succulent garden. The rain adds extra beauty to the flowers (see thumbnails below main picture).
I needed 5 different pictures for this composition. The first one is the sky (mainframe) added with the photo’s of respectively the lorry going off-hill; 2 of the cows (one mirrored) plus the sheep. The pictures have one thing on common; they were all made within a radius of 2 kilometers in Papiesvlei nearby our village Stanford, South Africa.
The title I gave the second composition is “Invasion of the Hottentots Gods” and is compiled of photo’s of the Stanford sky; the ‘Grand Canyon of South Africa’ near the hamlet Plathuis somewhere North of Route62 between Barrydale and Ladysmith; the Klein Rivier Mountains (mirrored); herons (left top) from the Storch Hotel in Zurich; a sculpture (twice) from the garden of Fraai Uitzicht plus enlargements of the Hottentots God; a fascinating South African insect worshipped by natives.
