I took this on my way home today. When we lived in Johannesburg and came down to Ficksburg to visit, or when we came back from visiting Johannesburg I remember my mom always telling me that when I saw this mountain, Soutkop, we were almost at our destination. My grandmother has also always had a large painting of this mountain showcased behind her bed. It is a very interesting and unique subject to photograph.
Every year for Cherry Festival the Methodist Church puts on a display of flowers. Back in the day I used to showcase an arrangement but unfortunately this year I didn’t have the time. The proceeds (at R25-00 each) go to the church fund. This money also gets you a cup of tea and 2 slices of home baked cake. This is always particularly mesmerising and a great photo opportunity.
