Continuing the South African theme.
I borrowed a car one day and went for a ride from Paarl over the mountain range using “Du Toits kloof” pass.
I stopped as often as possible and even went trekking through dense vegetation a few times for some photos.
Like this photo of the national flower, the Protea.I stopped at the “Du Toits kloof” tunnel and tried to get a few photos while staying out the traffic’s way.
I was lucky to be using a little Mini Cooper and I thought this looks like a nice advert for the car, one you could see in a car magazine.
Stopped at the “Du Toits kloof” resort. I attended a wedding there a while back.
Then continued onto Worcester. I heard a train and stopped where I found a safe spot. I ran back in time get a few photos of it.
I was a little surprised as this wasn’t just any train it was the Blue train, the most luxuries train in South Africa (don’t let the outside fool you).
I saw some horses in the distance and tried to get a nice photo with them and the mountains in the back drop.
Not the greatest results, I need more work on landscape photos.
Then leaving Worcester behind and onto “Bains Kloof” pass, the next 4 photos are on-route to Bains kloof”.
To my surprise I was back on this same roads a few days later for a 4×4 event but that’s for another day/post.
Stopped in “Bains kloof” and took a walk down to the river. I remember encountering a troop of bubboons 25 years ago in this valley.
Very dangerous animals and not to be taken lightly.
Apologies for the delay in these photos, life sometimes takes priority over art. I will endeavour to get my posts back on track.
