  • Atlantis mission

    Today Yolandi went on her first dune bashing adventure to the Atlantis sand dunes. With a partner in crime – Green African‘s Discovery Sport. We made a few rookie errors. Namely tyre pressure, and a pretty late start to the mission. When they say midday sun removes most dune shadows they’re telling the truth. This means for some […]

  • Chapman’s Peak

    Last week I went on a very windy photo mission with Andy Schar. We drove around Chapman’s Peak, which is one of my favourite drives in Cape Town (previous photos).

Today I’m at the top of Whistler mountain working on a WooCommerce town hall presentation and discussing a 3 year plan for our division. Just […]

  • Cape Sugarbird

    I’ve never been a big bird watcher, but sitting in a wild garden watching an assortment of birds feeding off the local fynbos is quite therapeutic. And wildly colourful.

  • Hermanus by night

    We spent last weekend in Hermanus – a seaside town our family love to escape to as often as possible. It’s also the place we got married, and a town known for it’s incredible whale sightings. I rented a Canon EF 11-24mm f/4L USM lens and enjoyed spending a few hours one evening trying to […]
