Water

Silvermine nature reserve

Note: I used Grammarly’s online plagiarism checker on this post because my grammar and spelling suck, and this tool also checks spelling, grammAr, punctuation and structure.

My broker and sister in law have been on holiday in Cape Town for the past couple of weeks, so I have spend a lot of time acting as an impromptu tour guide. So for today’s trip we decided to go for a walk around the reservoir in the Silvermine nature reserve, and for a walk along one of the many hiking trails.

My SLR was a little heavy to carry around the mountain trails so I just took my point and shoot and I think that this shot is more proof that the best camera is the one you have with you.

Sunset at Kommetjie

I had a very lazy weekend, so at the last minute I shot down to Kimmetjie lighthouse to play around with a few evening photos. This one was taken just in front of the ligthhouse, looking down towards the sunset.

Reflection in the park

Reflection of a jungle-gym in a huge puddle after the days of stormy weather; it look like it is in the middle of a river, doesn’t it? The huge area of water it is in is a massive puddle in a very water-logged park. I think it’s going to take weeks for it to drain (it is a lake in the background, it is not that wet).

Reflective Sunrise

Another lovely sunrise after a very wet few stormy days. I think that we are still going to have some more storms, and that this was just a brief interlude. The green belt around the vlei is completely waterlogged. Even the ducks have started using the puddles as paddling pools.

Winter storms

We had a very late winter storm over the weekend, and finally today has dawned into a wonderfully clear blue sky. But the mountain streams are gushing with all the runoff, and if you look around you can find some wonderful waterfalls that are usually dry or just a small trickle.
