Very rare to have such a (relatively) clear view on the Riviersonderend Mountains 50 km from here.

…. with surprises. I’m privileged to live in South Africa. The country is globally in the news because of its president with whom not everybody agrees. 22 Years after Mandela became president and the country officially a democracy not much has changed. There is still ‘apartheid’, there is crime, there is a lack of decent education (in fact education for the masses has not been improved since 1994 (understatement 😉 ) etc. etc.
But why should I be so optimistic about me (Dutch) living in South Africa since April 2000?
Well, where I live (125 km East of Cape Town) every day is full of surprises for the photographer. The day starts with the Golden Hour and it ends with a majestic sunset. If you get up early in the morning or go to bed at night with these views and don’t become optimistic …. well…. (?)…
