… is where I live.
Farmers are the large scale landscapers on a global scale. Here in the Overberg region of the Western Cape, more specific in and around our village Stanford, it’s not different to the rest of the world. Every human intervention in nature leaves traces and around here I enjoy the photogenic gems on my way to nowhere; just touring around to shoot. All pictures in this serie of 13 are shot on the morning of Monday 15 july. All pictures are made along the road between Stanford and the borderline with Caledon. I hope you enjoy these daily postings as much as I loves shooting them.
Part 9: the valley turns left
Today I checked the garden we created 2 years ago at Guesthouse Fraai Uitzicht 1798 (4* rated) in the Klaas Voogds Valley near Robertson in the Western Cape, South Africa.
It still looks good despite a little backlog in maintenance (due to ‘awesome busy season’) but at the moment 2 staff members weeding. Soon we plant the ‘filling up’.
The Sunset in the Stanford Valley inspired me for this imaginary:
The ‘elements’ used are those of an informal settlement nearby (right), the cat of Matjiesfontein, a flying heron, my first photo model Karuna, her eye and a beach boy from Hermanus.
