    Photo 10 the 2016 Collection

    Wide-angle photography is not easy, sure when it is a landscape or cityscape, point, frame, shoot and voila!
    But there is so much more to it than that, the finer details, the wide scope of life and more, much more.
    My wife, Geraldine, is so good at finding these, I often think she is a natural. She will deny it but she does have an eye for it.

    Yesterday’s flower looked like it was once prickly, this one was a pure affirmation.
    I found it growing near the “Welcome to the Free State” sign by the Vaal Dam, luckily no one asked for my passport and the day when on merely.

    I really am oblivious to the flora finer points but that looks like it was prickly.

    Photo 12 of 356 of the 2015 Collection

    Randomly chosen by good neighbor Andrew Stevenson from my Blue collection.
    Beaches, long stretch of satin white sand brushing our feet as we walk along…
    Not so here, it was rocky and a hard walk but beautiful in every ways imaginable, the Oliphantbos Walking Trail is well worth doing.
    We, unfortunately, could not finish it due to the weather but it was fun never the less.

    It’s also becoming challenging and fun to allow random picks from people on Facebook.
    It forces me to do photos I had in my “publishable” collection but never got around to it, that means getting creative to get the photo just right.
    Post-processing has now taken a new meaning.
