Somehow the words ‘Cape’ and ‘good weather’ don’t seem to mix – this might be true in the mind, but hardly the reality of what I experienced this year whilst guiding a number of trips across the length and breadth of the Cape.
I’ll let the photos speak for themselves – my guests and I got down low to capture the beautiful detail in the immense diversity of wildflowers. We zoomed out far to get shots of endemic antelope, cavorting whales and the majestic grassland birds like the Blue Crane and the bustards. We froze to snap the elusive elephant shrew going about his business. We sat patiently to be rewarded with some action at a seabird colony and even more patiently to freeze the perfect frame at a waterhole in the Kalahari.
Although photography has not been the driving force behind the trips over the past 3 months, it all our eyes to a myriad of details and allowed us to sit back and marvel at the richness of life right here at the Southern Tip of Africa (even when we do have a few rainy or snowy days!).
