It has been a number of years since we as a family have visited Clarens, it really is a scenic, beautiful part of the Free State. The sandstone mountains and vibrant colours are inspiring. So here are a few of the first images I captures from the farm Schaapplaats - angora goats and connemara ponies are bred here.
This shoot was done just over two weeks ago at Delta Park on a warm, sunny, Sunday afternoon, late. Little Emma kept me smiling as her determined and active personality came through and I hope this aspect of her is reflceted in these photos. It is always fun to work with Tim, Vanessa and Emma and a privilage to be asked more than once to take pictures of these special moments.
. . .Well actually, the light side of the moon as seen early last week reflecting the sun on its left side.
I could not resist trying to shoot the storm clouds that I could see from the car as we neared Johannesberg on our trip up from Cape Town. I shot these with my 50mm prime lense while the car was moving. I love how quickly the landscape changed.
Down at Muizenberg beach just after 6am for New Years morning.
Although I missed sunrise, these are some shots of the Slangkop lighthouse Kommetjie in the Western Cape.
Some photos of Christmas eve spent on Noordhoek's Long Beach.
My Tamron lens, which is not the worlds best macro lens has been broken for a while and has now been repaired. It was time to venture out and take a few shots. Here they are.
Some rather personal photos . . . our new, and in our opinion, very cute kitten.
The Very Hungry Caterpillar was the theme of Julian's first birthday party, his favorite bedtime story book. His mom Tamra had been very clever finding ways to make this theme evident for her special baby boy who thoroughly enjoyed his day. It was special for me to be asked to shoot this and be witness to how much Julian is loved.
