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?

 

New book

Today my second book (limited edition of 50 + 1 for myself) is published. The first one (‘Landscapes in and around Napier’) was virtually sold out in the pre-order phase. This second one (‘landscapes in the Overberg’) is also running fast before published. Only 6 or 7 left but these I hope to sell during the ‘Greyton Art Walk’ this weekend.

Here a few of the pictures.
