Lens Artists Challenge #117: A Photo Walk

The Lens-Artists Challenge is hosted this week by Amy

The South African spring begins in August and continues through to October. This season brings so many colours of flowers: white, yellow, orange, pink, red, and purple.

Thanks to the heavy rains we’ve received this winter we had a spectacular flower season. The blooms are especially prominent along the west coast areas.  West Coast National Park, close to Langebaan had so much to offer this year.
