Tarlton Vlei - Maree

“Life is like a rainbow. You need both the sun and the rain to make its colours appear.”
- wolfdyke

Still on the subject of rain, all the vleis (marshes) in Tarlton and surrounding areas are full and turning the landscape into a shimmering play of colours... For the past couple of weeks we've had between 15mm and 70ml rain most days, causing trees to fall over and swollen rivers to burst their banks. It's also great seeing huge flocks of water birds enjoying this abundance so late in the season.

This area, just 3km from us, is usually quite dry, with young boys charging around on their off-road bikes.


  1. This is so lovely, I am amazed at all the colors and textures that you have done here, it comes together perfectly!

  2. Thank you Desiree, I can sometimes get carried away with detail!
