Earlier this week. The mountains at the horizon are about 50 km (30 miles) away.
The grass is green; thanks to sufficient water management of farmers and municipalities in our Overberg region. Something the council in Cape Town can learn from. In the meantime virtually all pristine drinking water from Table Mountain (Cape Town) disappears in the Ocean…
‘The Ruens is the name for the rolling hills between Napier Mountain and the Riviersonderend Mountains in the Overberg region in the Western Cape, South Africa.
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?
