Scenes from the Cape

They are integral to our lives
Here on this peninsula on the southern tip of Africa
Ringed by mountains and the sea
They are all encompassing
Their beauty never fails to astound

And yet,
Blinded by familiarity
We bypass their splendour,
They become the backdrop to our goal driven lives.
With this series I invite you to
Take a moment to survey
This glory that surrounds
Permanent but ever changing
Fixed but never predictable,
This wonder that is the Western Cape
These landscapes I call home.
