Sunday was spent in the Cecilia forest, where Rene and I explored the river after some much needed rain in the Western Cape, South Africa. What a difference just that small amount of rain makes! We managed to get a few hours of photography in, following the river up from the mountain.
Cecilia Forest was previously a managed forestry area, covered in Pine trees and Eucalyptus. Since becoming part of the Table Mountain National Park, the pines have largely been removed to allow the natural Fynbos vegetation and Afro-mountain forest to return to the area. The difference between the two forest environments, managed and Afro-mountain, is staggering. The amount of life and variety of plant and trees in the natural forest is beyond comparison, and just the feeling of being in the natural forest is invigorating.
Another beautiful day out with the camera.
Till next time
