Aloe time in the Western Cape

The Western Cape in South Africa is a Winter rainfall area. And while the Northern Hemisphere is moving into the summer here we slowly move into the Winter. For the Western Cape it means that many endemic aloes will provide a magnificent view while driving through the rural part of this South African province.

Broken Nostalgia

Is it broken or not. I just wondered going through my photo-archive and finding these pictures I made in the rural Overberg and (second gallery) of a hidden gem in Hermanus, Western Cape, South Africa.

A village awakes

Early morning I start the day with a doggy walk, followed by the obvious coffee, and most of the time I have my camera with me just in case of. There was a bit of mist in ‘Die Vlei’ (little lake) but not enough to make a faerie-like picture; still than I shot a few. Can you see the ducks? People going to work on their feet or by car and school children on their way to get educated by dedicated teachers (here in the village they are!); some in a hurry and others in slow rural pace. The sun is rising and lightning the moon. This is Good Morning in Stanford, somewhere in nowhere in South Africa!
