Cold but Gold!

Winter mornings down in Cape Town are often misty. The light was perfect and the scene quite sublime - a chance to capture a fleeting moment when light and mood create magic.

Spring Flower season - 2014!

The end of winter means flower season down here in the Western Cape. Many fynbos species bloom during this period and rare types can be found throughout the Western Cape with a little leg work and effort.

The insects and pollinators of Fynbos

Many of the plants in the Cape Floristic Region have some very unusual polinators, from ants to mice and exotic long-tonged flies with exotic names. Some plants have evolved  along with their specific polinator, with their adaptions becoming more and more ‘extreeme’ in the race to make sure that none of their pollen goes to waste.
