Photohunt: Curved


Van Rhyn's Pass
Van Rhyn's Pass - South Africa

This week's Photohunt theme is curved. It did not take very long until I remembered this road. This is the road from Knersvlakte area of the Western Cape up to Van Rhyn's Pass - the gate way to the Bokkeveld Plateau and the town of Nieuwoudtville. We were 'chasing flowers' and headed to Papkuilsfontein Guest Farm. The Bokkeveld Plateau area is a botanical wonderland. The unique Cape Fynbos intersects with the more dry area of the Karoo and Knersvlakte. We saw fields of wildflowers and bulbs. The serenity of the area was amazing. It was one of our favorite stays in South Africa.

Great photos. I didn't even think about a curved road. Good one! Have a safe trip :)

Waves are now predicted to be 40 to 50 feet high Monday or Tuesday!

Awesome photos, Marta.

That's quite a curvy road!

I played too :)

Hi Marta, great collection of photos and wonderful choices for this week's theme. I love all of them especially the last one with the yellow flowers. South Africa is very high on my list so maybe I'll get to see these same curves one day soon...

Thanks so much for sharing and have a great weekend!

Very creative take on this week's theme. Enjoyed your photos and post very much. Have a glorious weekend, M
