Last weekend’s trip to Hogsback was a good time for photography: the light was excellent, landscape compositions were everywhere and, of course, there’s my daughters and grandchildren. I’ve already posted my antique picture panorama but here’s a selection of the other pictures I took.
This composition was right outside Helen’s house: the building poles were stacked above the fire pit with Tor Doone looming behind them. I couldn’t resist taking another, with completely different clouds, the following morning when we set off for one of our walks.
Family walks with small children and an even smaller puppy can be slow affairs. Here’s Helen holding hands with Luke and her new puppy, Rain, trotting along beside them This was taken in poor light with my telephoto lens looking down the long hill beside Helen’s house. The next day we had another walk – to Luke’s ‘Niagara’ waterfall – and here is Sophie being carried in her backpack by Jeannie.
Helen gave me a great guided tour around the property before we left for a Sunday meal: she ended it by showing me where she plans to build the new main house. Driving home to Grahamstown on Sunday the light was lovely and the clouds were dramatic so I stopped at the Pluto’s Vale turnoff to take some last pictures before sunset.
