As a wild-flower lover, I was completely captivated by the sight of this field of colour. This shot is a broader view of the field where the patches of different flowers makes great splashes of colour against the turquoise waters of Langebaan Lagoon. If anyone wishes to visit South Africa, I cannot recommend a better or more beautiful season than spring when the land wears her very best party dress.

A color festival, really.
It gives the temptation to lay down and savor the flowers...

I have fresh memories of wonderful wild flowers of South Africa. But you found even more amazing flowery carpet than I saw. Wonderful shot, so colourful and sharp.
I returned yesterday from my Southern Africa trip. It was fantastic adventure. I am full of great memories (and a few SD cards are also full :)). I will post some of them soon.

Another fine composition featuring this wonderful expanse of wild flowers. If anything, I also like it more than the previous one. The lighting is very pleasant and the colours magnificent. Very well composed.

Une autre très belle photo du cap. C'est incroyable de voir toutes ces couleurs qui brillent au soleil, la petite cabane blanche qui sert de de point focal et la mer derrière qui apporte beaucoup de profondeur.

This scene would be a painter's delight with all the hues of the flowers spread from here to there. This must be a great view as we see in your image.

Amazing! Do the flowers smell? Are there pathes to stroll through this wonderful carpet?
gildasjan (38184) 2012-10-16 12:03
Une très bonne lumière donne beaucoup d'intensité aux couleurs de ces premiers plans agréablement fleuris créant une bonne harmonie avec le bleu de ce ciel.

Outstanding wide angle shot with the house as an anchor to a shot full of bright vivid color - flowers, sea and sky. I can see why you'd be so captivated here; this is the kind of vista that sucks you in. Thanks for sharing it - I had no idea that South Africa was such a wildflower mecca!

with such a variety of colours to choose from it must be difficult to know where to start when composing a shot!
This works very well for me not only because of the flowers but also the little white house on the coast line,something to rest my eye on.It`s a fine piece of photography.
Best regards Les.

This is such a beautiful scene and in your ususal excellent quality, also considering that it was taken at around noon and with very little cloud. The accolades below are well deserved. Best wishes.

the instinct is to do two dives, one in the sea and the other in the fabulous carpet of flowers, wonderful shot amazing place...

Beautiful, beautiful colors to the photo! I love the gradual blending of the blue skies into the violet and then pink flowers. Very nice! :)

Appears as the Cape put on its ceremonial regalia a few days before you took this superb view by the sea!
An enchanting color burst indeed that constitutes a pleasure for the eyes!
