Hiking to snow-capped mountain peaks in the Western Cape of South Africa!
Does it really snow on Table Mountain in Cape Town? Yes! Yes it does!
A young female Klipspringer pauses on the rocky ridge, listening and watching cautiously before bouncing off down the mountainside.
Table Mountain forest scene on a wet and moody day.
A Cape gannet, its piercing blue eyes unmistakable, swoops in, causing a raucous, in some degree of organised chaos.
I followed individuals of the harvesting team around the Muscat vineyard block, adjacent to the historic old Groot Constantia gates, observing just how delicately they handled each bunch...looking for the perfect grapes.
How has the Twelve Apostles range of Table Mountain changed over the past year and a bit since the big fire of October 2017?
As expected the mountain is looking spectacular and a new wave of colour has hit these parts.
Dominant species across the spine include Cape Anemone, Star-eyed Aristea and the striking Witmagriet. In damp areas you'll find Bulbinella nutans and Sterretjies in abundance. A seriously impressive sight.
The silver hairs on the leaves of young Conebushes, standing just about 10 cm high, shimmered in the gentle sunlight. Vibrant yellow Spiloxene littered the damp plateau, with a splash of purple and white from flowering Romulea and Cape Anemone.
