Striated Skies so far…

Striated skies

2015 is rushing along like years seem to do these days and so far I have published 12 striated skies out of the 52 for the year. I am thoroughly enjoying this project and hope that you are too. Let me know what has been your favourite so far.

Tomorrow I will publish number 13 titled  “Creeping Condensation”.

Striated Skies No. 6 – Suspended Beauty

6. Suspended Beauty

Taken from the Du Toitskloof Pass this piece shows another of the many beauties that South Africa has to offer. The Du Toitskloof Pass, which was built by Italian prisoners of war during the second world war, is a scenic drive that gives you expansive view over the Boland. The pass was replaced by the Huguenot tunnel in 1988 and takes you through the Du Toitskloof mountains between Paarl and Worcester. The tunnel is 3.9km and makes the trip approximately 11km shorter. For more on the history of the Pass click here.

I have driven both the pass and the tunnel and if you have time on your hands I would suggest driving the pass over using the tunnel.
