Mother nature abhors a vacuum, or more accurately nature strives to shroud every inch of exposed earth. From ground level to canopy height plants, when undisturbed cover the entire surface of available soil.
In the South African fynbos of the Cape, the epoch of 20,000 years following the glacial melt of the Southern hemisphere has permitted a profusion of floral evolution resulting in botanical diversity unrivalled by anywhere else on the planet.
Stretching from the Cape to the Garden Route with arguably the most enduring flowering period, nature enthusiasts can experience a vivid display of colour between February and December.
For photographers the challenge of choosing to right time to visit the Fynbos is outweighed by the sheer vibrancy of the wide selection of compositions available.
