Jonkershoek Valley, Stellenbosch

Strijdom drew a water line on a little bridge on a path in the forest early on a summer’s morning just as the sun was coming through the trees. Carefully timed, during a site visit on a day beforehand, to enable us to capture it before the direct sunlight started falling on this area. Road just next to the forest, to the left of the frame, audibly popular with hikers and cyclists particularly on a beautiful Saturday morning in summer. Had to wait for the right moment, and were lucky to be able to capture the sound of Strijdom walking over the bridge and the water falling without noise from the road, while we were getting the shot. Great shots afterwards of the bright Stellenbosch light cascading through the forest foliage. Forest sounds to be recorded on another day when the outdoor enthusiasts had gone.
