Swellendam Reservoir

By Hermanus
Yesterday was such a glorious Spring day that I had to grab the camera and took a hike to our water reservoir against the mountain. All our water come from the mountains Smile The dam was surrounded by Pine trees but they were all destroyed two years ago in a fire. Hopefully the heather will be back this year.
Thank you so much to Ju and Graham for their precious UA's on my yellow ranunculi yesterday and also to everyone who voted or commented !!
Have a super weekend

This is a wonderful landscape, Herman. Great reflections, but I really like how you have the image go from close foreground to the mountains in the back.
