What strikes me while driving around the Cape of Good Hope area is how the environment appears tortured by the elements...the fynbos whipped by the winds and beaten by the sun but in amongst that "end of the world" landscape, the most amazing protea bushes grow, so delicate, so intricate and yet so resistant...

The pin-cushions had started blooming and I went mad, taking photos of them with my new magnifying lenses... aren't they magnificent?
