The Western Cape is a Winter rainfall area. The aloes originating from this part of the world are flowering. This picture is a severely cropped and enlarged part of the original photo.
A few of the textures I use for background layers of photo-imaginaries. All natural but after some processing including HDR-toning etc. At the moment a collection of a few hundred to choose from. These layers add some depth. They are an ‘art’ of their own … 😉
….. is always Sunshine.
After heavy rainfall on Thursday 9 May the sun came through and around 9 AM I shot several detail pictures with my Sony A77 with Sigma 70-300 Macro lens. The lens was directed more or less towards the sun. All images in B&W. Today number 1o of 10. Think that this photo and the first one are the best.
