Locked in and dreaming of mountain scapes

Once on my travels botanizing in the Hex River mountains in the Western Cape in South Africa I was in the right place at the right time. It was dusk and I was returning from a day's fieldwork studying legumes in the field. As I crossed the river and approached my friend's farmhouse my attention became transfixed on the softening light. I slammed on the brakes of the car, jumped out with my camera, and just managed to capture the last gasp of the day as it slid rapidly and silently into shadow. It was as if the world was holding its breath. These are the images I managed to capture and which always fill me with longing and seem redolent of the desire to move out into the wild world again once we can return to the new unmapped emerging post-pandemic world
