The story behind the image
The area between Cape Town and Port Elizabeth is called Garden Route. While most tourists put the focus on visiting the numerous vineyards, beautiful beaches and parks, you may also find yourself being plunged back into the middle west of the United States.
We took a detour to the small historic village of Elim and encountered a bumpy ride over dozens of kilometers of gravel road. However, the streets in Elim have been perfectly tarred (but end at the end of the village.)
Between Elim and Hermanus we found this beautiful image of an old windmill that sits on dry farmland. I like the reduced color set – just the blue sky and the light brown soil – which highlights the dry conditions in March. Plenty of copyspace for those who need it. Nice.
