Just over a week ago we returned from our annual Easter family holiday in the Cape. The weather in March in the Cape is the best, although nowadays you never can tell (my plight against global warming justifies another post). Not different from anyone else, when I am on holiday I want to do things a bit different than a normal working day which is difficult when you are a professional photographer because taking photos are such an integral part of one’s holiday memories. I therefore am guilty of not lifting my camera to my eye as often as I should when being in a place as beautiful as the Cape.
If you are a regular follower of my blog you should know that I like to see and present things a bit different in my photography and I subconsciously also do this when photographing landscapes. I am not an expert in landscape photography, far from it. I am therefore often a bit self-conscious to post some of my efforts, but here goes. I promise to post links to the webpages of friends that are excellent landscape photographers, then you will understand what I mean. So little time, so much to learn.
Tomorrow, Anelda and Andre’s beautiful wedding at Cussonia Crest.
Take care, friends.
Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens in Groot Contstantia.
Table Mountain as seen from Bloubergstrand. I wanted to stay till all the lights at the foot of the mountain could be seen, but the wind was pumping and the kids got hungry
Houtbay as seen from Chapmans Peak. The sky was amazing – I enhanced it in Photoshop for more dramatic effect
