Spring blooms – Flickr pic of the day

This photograph was taken near Melkbosstrand by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group member CollinScott.

The Cape West Coast is famed for its spectacular spring blooms, attracting travellers from near and far to see the transformation of this usually rugged terrain into a floral carpet.

"It was a beautiful, sunny September's day in Cape Town. I hopped on my little scooter and popped in at the beach on Atlantic Beach Drive, just off Otto DuPlessis Road from Melkbosstrand. When I saw the clouds in the air, I knew it was a great day to do some landscape photography. I did not expect to see this many flowers and was overwhelmed. The beach itself presented little interest, but the colours that fringed the beach were astounding," says Collin.
