Kenmo Lake – Himeville


I couldn’t make the outing with Hillcrest Camera Club to Kenmo Lake but managed to convince my family to go camping in the area for a long weekend. We stayed at Goxhill Trout Lodge. For more information on that please see the next post.

This is a really beautiful spot for photography especially in autumn. the colours are spectacular and the little benches dotted around are perfect for a picnic or to just relax with a book. There is a little jetty with a thatched area that is very popular for wedding pictures.

Camping nearby afforded us the ability to get there for sunrise which produced some lovely images with early morning mists. The colours changed beautifully as the sun rose.

Moyo Pier and Durban Botanical Gardens Outing

This was our first outing of 2015.

We were  lucky and sunrise greeted us at Moyo Pier with a stunning show.

Durban Botanical Gardens is a lovely park like setting with ponds, beds of flowers, birds, monkeys and a  lovely little tea garden.

It was great to get together with the club members that we hadn’t seen since the previous year.

Flamenco Evening

These were taken in a really dark Jazz Bar at a local university. This was their dress rehersal. They were taken with my Sony HX100v so I’m quiet happy with them despite the grain / noise due to the extreme low light.
