Colourful

Golden Light


The lovely winter weather we had -up until today- inspired me get out there and enjoy the amazing surroundings of the City. One day it was the sea shore the next the mountain... whatever I just fancied. The thing that every year strikes me... winter is rather colourful. (Quite unlike Heidiland) There are amazing Proteas blooming and other flowers whose names I sadly don't know. The other thing that is just amazing is the light. At this time of the year I often switch to monochrome - the low angle of the sun produces beautiful shadows and reflections without the starkness that we have during summer. But it also gives everything a wonderful golden glow- especially in the afternoon....
