This Cape Town Guy (And Ambitious Photographer) recently had the privilege of joining in on the wonderful journey with the Put Foot Foundation’s 2017 Rally. With little expectancy for the journey I was about about to embark on, after a kiss from my beautiful wife Jaimi, I headed out into the cold wintery early hours of a Sunday morning in the middle of June from my home town Melkbosstrand, and jumped onboard with an rowdy yet wonderfully friendly Aussie crew who I was assigned to for certain legs of our adventure. Jason, the leader of the Aussie pack “Reboot Yourself - Happy Day” was a legend to spend time with, himself having done the 2016 Rally, so his knowledge of what was on route, what to see and where to go was just golden. Jason you legend.
Each year the South African National Parks opens most of their wonderful landscapes for locals to visit free of charge. This offer included the stunning Cape Peninsula and the Table Mountain National Park. We took advantage of this by spending two days in the Cape Point Nature Reserve, hiking to secluded beaches and taking some wonderful images. Here are just a few of the captures from those two days.
A couple of weeks back, after a busy week of sitting in front of our Apple Macs editing for hours, Jaimi got a bee in bonnet for us to head on out on a road trip to the little town of Yzerfontein, about a 45 minute drive from our home in Big Bay, Blouberg. We have never been there so it was an idea I welcomed with open arms.
We headed out and had a little stop off at Melkbos and Grotto Bay on the way. Both of these towns are well worth a stop over and visit.
Two good friends or ours recently visited Cape Town and it was a lovely opportunity for me to capture them in the beautiful settings surrounding Big Bay and Melkbos here on the West Coast of Cape Town. Being a Cape Town photographed one is always spoilt for locations and shooting this couple in amongst the Fynbos near Haakgat Beach, just 2 km from the little town of Melkbos was an absolute pleasure.
