The fire

It’s not only California that suffers from fire during the Summer months. It’s Summer here in South Africa and almost no day without a fire in the Western Cape. Recently, for the second time in a month, just outside our village.

Before and After (trial)

The challenge (Dutch client): make a picture of a Summer landscape and transform it into an Autumn landscape. Well I made 3 pictures here in South Africa where it is Winter … Now he also wants to have snow …. 😉

Off-Season in Stanford, South Africa

It’s Winter in South Africa. So my off-season picture gallery (38 pictures!!!) contains mainly Summer pictures of our village (including surrounding area) plus one of a dormant insect between the blindings of my studio which I shot this morning.  

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.

It’s Summer in South Africa

It’s Summer …

Summer sleep

Dormancy in the garden … well … every plant needs some rest; very human like 😀
