Spent the day touring the interior while in South Africa… traveled to this small town North of Johannesburg called Barberton.

The Jacaranda trees… were just breathtaking as it was Spring and they were in all their glory.

The Dutch and Euro influience… in South Africa is dominate in the architecture in the small towns and villages. I wanted to experience and see the places that are the foundation to any country.

Thanks for viewing my photography.

I enjoy a full time career as a working Fine Art Artist and Natural Lifestyle Photographer.
To me, my art and photography is the best way to express what I see around me.
I also teach both mediums and I host 3 and 4 day Art and Photography Workshop Retreats through my private studio on my desert property in Nevada/Arizona.
I formed Elbow Canyon Fine Art & Photography Retreats several years ago to offer my students a unique one-on-one instruction.
Thanks for viewing my work

    This image just ekes of romance…the beautiful gate and the splash of color from the tree….lovely image, Susan!

  • It WAS a little romantic village…very old typical South African with the Dutch flair…old Victorian houses, narrow and winding lanes… Thanks Barb!
