I went to stock up on some yummy Jalapeno Jelly on a berry farm near Swellendam and took a few photos. Thought the cottage had some photographic merit Smile

Very photogenic Hermanus. Wonderful shot of an atmospheric setting. My wife made jalapeno jelly for the winter, along with many other preserves.Smile That's an excellent composition also Hermanus, well done.

Cheers,
Denny

Wow! What a dreamscape. One could hold up here, play guitar and overdose on spicy jelly and crackers with cheese and wine. TG

I like the contrast between the simple, quaint building and its garden compared to the towering, wild background.

What a delightful setting for the cottage, Herman: lush vegetation and shrubs around and that spectacular mountainside backdrop, the tops wreathed in cloud.
A very nicely composed landscape shot showing off the beauty of the area.

My first thought on seeing this cottage! was that it was a smokehouse for curing meat looking at the size of the chimney, then I looked at the garden and thought I quite like that, my next thought was it's a roof over your head! yes I could be happy spending some time there! away from it all enjoying the misty mountains, nice one like it, regards Leon.GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

I totally agree . Still looks grand . Wouldn't take much to put it right, wonder though would you get a soaking when the snow melted off the mountains ??
