There are times when everything just works fantastically together to create a lovely image. I spotted this lady tending her garden recently, and could not resist the wonderful combination of colours and the even lighting. The pinks and mauves in the foreground were well complemented by the delightful Jacaranda tree in the background.
These images were taken at the “Beestekraal Stasie” Restaurant on the route between Johannesburg and Marakele National Park in South Africa. The restaurant is an old station which has been given a new lease of life – trains still pass by, but they no longer stop for passengers.
Good food and excellent company combined with unusual surroundings turned this lunch stop into one of life’s unforgettable events.
