There’s a music group called the ‘Red Hot Chili Peppers‘; which these plants aren’t. But I liked how the angle of the sunlight set these plants on fire.
The sun is high up on the right, causing the deep blue of the sky to be drained of colour as you look across the photo from left to right, and making the mountain appear to be in a haze.
This may have been the last day of summer, a few days ago, here in Cape Town. A cold front has just passed through and suddenly it is winter. Yes, it is chilly!
post script: A note about yesterday’s post. Sorry, but I forget that not all my readers grew up with the kind of music I did. There is a song called “Rose Garden” which has the line: ‘I beg your pardon, I never promised you a rose garden.’
That was my joke. A photo of a lavender garden, because I never promised you a rose garden!
To all those who did get the reference – High Five!
