We are very fortunate in that although we live on the outskirts of a small city, we are close to the mountains and a very short drive away from the nearest forestry plantation. So last Sunday, we went for another walk there. It was a beautiful sunny winter’s morning here, so I decided to take some photographs. Unfortunately, you cannot hear all the bird calls, frog croaks, and insect chirps and buzzes that went along with the beautiful scenery.
We got to this little dam and Willie and I just couldn’t resist taking some photos of the reflections of the trees and mountains in the water. It was a hazy day and although you couldn’t see the mountain properly, it reflected much more clearly in the water.
It is winter here in the southern hemisphere so there are not a lot of flowers about, but we found some tiny flowers along the roadside.
Unfortunately, we had to turn back when the bergwind (hot, dry wind blowing down from the mountains) started to blow and it got too warm to walk comfortably.
If you haven’t already seen it, have a look at A Walk in the Woods I.
