A morning walk up the side of Table Mountain into Newlands Forest, just a day after some rain finally hit the drought stricken Cape Town. Our hope was that there would be some water in the small streams that flow through the forests, but the rivers were mostly dry, with very little water in those that did have. We’re down to the last dregs of the supply dams, desperate for the arrival of some winter rain.
Should have listened. The drought in South Africa has dropped the water levels in the streams to a very sad level. Lowest I’ve seen them in 15 years. Still beautiful to photograph.
