Something about my da causes my dev's to only show in some watchers' inbox.

To me, this valley in the Eastern Cape is the most beautiful part of South Africa. It's just photo heaven for me thanks to a combination of unbelievable natural beauty and abandoned farm ruins everywhere.

It's the road between Elliot and Barkley East.

I'm going back there in Autumn. The area is famous for it's poplar trees which turn just as intensely yellow as America's ash trees.

Ha! Great picture, really great. I love how the rock in the left middle shows it's shadow, the little details make the picture!

And by the way, it's so funny to see you speak African with someone who commented on this work, i can actually read most of it which is pretty logical since i'm Dutch myself. It's really funny to read, heheh. But anyways keep posting those great pics! :)

Hougaard, I saw this photo on your website homepage, and I have no words for it!

I am wondering how do you get this 'light' (not heavy) feeling in your photographs? Every single time I see your work, that is the question roaming in my head...please give me an answer so I can sleep at night ;)
