Proteas on the mountain

The Montagu Tractor Trip, one of the premier activities to do when visiting the Klein Karoo town of Montagu, takes place on a farm called Protea Farm about 35 km out of town.  When we arrived at the farm I didn't really notice any proteas, but as we travelled up the mountain they started to appear in the surrounding vegetation.  The surrounding mountains and valley made for some excellent backgrounds to photographing these proteas. 


  1. Beautiful photos! Proteas are exquisite flowers... sometimes we can buy them over in bouquets

  2. Wow, absolutely gorgeous flowers and that last shot is Awesome!

    I saw some of these near the Cape of Good Hope.

  3. Pretty nice post. I just stumbled upon your weblog and wished to say that I've really enjoyed surfing around your blog posts. In any case I’ll be subscribing to your rss feed and I hope you write again very soon!
