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?

 

A Year Round Floral Display

We don’t have the extreme temperature differences throughout the year as in some places in the world. Think about some parts of Ontario (Canada) or Russia (from minus 40 to plus 40 degrees Celcius). Here it is from plus 6 to plus 37. So throughout the seasons we have floral display in our garden although something is going to change.  Here are a few pics shot throughout the seasons last year.
