On the 23 March was World Meteorogical Day.. With the moon being full we decided to host a little photographic evening where newbies and experienced folk could do a walk and shoot on the property from the early afternoon and into the evening capturing the moon in its full glory.. A professional photographer gave tips and assisted where necessary to capture some amazing photographs and showed those not that confident how to set cameras up and take some amazing images.
We followed one of the hiking trails on the property that Winds around the guest house, through a stretch of coastal forest toward the sand dunes famous on the Chokka Trail. Apart from spotting the nyala bulls, an assortment of birds too fast to identify, we stumbled across the beautiful Brunsvigia blooming in the afternoon sun.
These flowers are actually under threat and are found only in our area. They bloom but once a year and while this makes it more special many gardeners unknowingly pull out and remove this bulb flower thinking it may have died. In winter months, it looks dry and rather uninviting. Come a few weeks in Autumn close to Easter time and its beauty more than makes up for it. If you see one, take a photo!
