Hemel en Aarde valley

One of the outstanding wine areas of South Africa is the famous Hemel en Aarde Valley. Or Heaven and Earth in Afrikaans. We’d never been, but were in the area for a few days this past August and decided to explore the place. Well, the descriptive name does justice to the place. It REALLY is quite stunning. The wine that can be found out there is also quite magical.

This image is the view that greets us as we entered the valley from Caledon. It’s a panorama merge of several images to give one a sense of the place’s awesomeness.

Hout Bay – pre-Cape Town Cycle Tour

This is an image taken from a lookout near the tollgate on the eve of the Cape Town Cycle Tour. I like this image, and hope you will too.

It’s part of a series containing 2500+ images that I used to build up a timelapse of one of the most gorgeous sunsets I’ve ever seen.

    So it begins again

    Well, suitcases are being unpacked and packed. And unpacked again. Camera gear is being arrange, batteries charged, and this blog being resurrected. It can only mean one thing: we’re off and racing tomorrow.

    This time, it’s Portugal. It’s a family journey this time to arrange family things. In amongst all of that, there will be time for some food (looking forward to that), sightseeing, and photography. Ruth (sister-in-law) won’t be joining us, and we’re really going to miss her.

    Be sure that there will be more to follow. We can’t wait, I tell you!

    Feet and Wheels

    Lately, I’ve been working some older images I’ve taken, and breathing new life into old souls of times gone by.

    So here’s a series of a few images I took in Copenhagen, just watching people pass by.

      Pompidou Centre

      This place is insane… All the services are on the OUTSIDE of the building. I’d managed to remember my fisheye lens this day, and this is how it turned out. The menacing clouds are quite nice I think.

      Place de la Concorde

      We went through here late one afternoon, and I’d brought my tripod along, and this is what I captured:
