Back from 3 months in South Africa with lots of exciting photographs of gorgeous scenery, stunning plants, and incredible rock formations - truly a rainbow country often called A WORLD IN ONE COUNTRY

I hope some of you missed me while I was away!

I have just had a terrific break away from my normal routines in Bath. I spent three months in Cape Town from where I was based at the University of Cape Town. I had the marvellous experience of mentoring 5 scientists and travelling with them to the field to collect plants for scientific study. It gave me the opportunity to visit some truly beautiful places with breath-taking scenery. I was overwhelmed by the brilliant hospitality of all the South Africans I met. As I was mostly in the field I did not have access to a computers so went quiet on the photo front. But I hope to make up.

My last photograph was taken in Claremont suburb of Cape Town in South Africa and is a view towards famous Table Mountain. This photograph is of a pool in the Cape Fynbos.

No idea what a Fynbos is, but it has stunning colours.
Welcome back.

The colours of this pool are natural. The waters of the streams in the Cape are brownish resulting from leaching of plant phenolics into the streams.

is a natural colour of the pond or was it polluted someway?
the colours are pretty but a bit disturbing (because they look so unusual)
