Taken whilst on Holiday at Clarens on the border of Lesotho. V2 - from our friend's farm near Richmond in the Northern Cape Province.
Thanx to all who took the time to comment or vote on the Silver Oak flower, and a special thanx to Pamela for the mod - removing that irritating leaf Smile That's what friends are for GrinGrin
Lots of rain yesterday and more predicted for today - warm and humid though.

Two wonderful image, friend Herman. Photos of cars, barns, boats, houses, as they decay and return to the earth have a articulate fascination for me. I particularly like V.1

I knew that was Clarens without even seeing the sign on the roof Grin (my sister lives in Bethlehem). So sad that, a few weeks ago, one of my best friend's father-in-law was tortured and murdered in that lovely little town. You probably heard of it in the news.

Nice images. Very reminiscent of cars in Cuba.

I uploaded a mod of V1. I think making it more about the car, by cropping a little tighter, and tweaking white blance (warmer) and contrast, it can improve the shot.

Whats the purpose of that spring on the ground, to the right?
