Flowers Darling South Africa

We were looking for an alternative flower venue, and head in the direction of the well known little town on our west coast called Darling, which is about 30minutes drive from Cape Town. We were delighted to come across two really special reserves, the one called the Tinie Versveldt Reserve as well as a very small Vygie Reserve just before Yzerfontein.

I used my 16 - 35mm 2.8is lens with polarized filter to get these shots.  The flowers were too low down for me to make use of my tripod.

Flowers of Table Mountain

Flowers of the West Coast are at their peak at the moment.  Alex has been taking so many beautiful pictures of the flowers lately, he inspired me to also take a walk on the wild side to see if I can find another magic shot.  Im very happy with this photo and hope you enjoy viewing it too.
