An Afreakin Photographer


De Hoop

We have a workshop in De Hoop at the end of September & has been a while since we've been there. We went through to see the changes & discuss our plans with the new management. My mom & I drove through on Tuesday last week in the mist & rain. It was looking amazing for photos, but decided to go straight through & try to get into the dunes for a shoot. We had to meet the guys at 3 & got there just after one, so a dune shoot would've been a bit far. I decided to take a walk along the edge of the vlei. It was still super cloudy, but rain had held off for a few min & really glad I went out because later on after out meeting it had closed up again & was raining too hard to get the cameras out.
The next morning was completely clear, a nice morning shoot in the dunes was on. It's been a while since I've been there without a workshop & was great to be able to go & shoot just what I wanted.
Back to the bungalow to have breakfast & pack up. Took the keys back to the reception near the vlei & went to snap a few there & on the way out of the reserve before we were on our way.
We definitely planned to stop & shoot the canola & green fields of the Overberg on the way home & the change in sky, from completely overcast the day before to 100% clear in the morning to cool puffy cloud with a few cirrus higher up made for great skies to go with the bright landscape. I kept feeling like I was driving through a Windows background haha Needless to say we stopped many times & was just enjoying the interesting skies as we were driving.

A stop at Napier's Coffee Shop (our usual refilling spot) was a must & got there just in time for lunch. I love the atmosphere in there as well as their food & snapped a few shots. A few stops after that & then back to reality.

Looking forward to see what our workshop brings us!
