A beautiful afternoon outside Stellenbosch. Couldn't decide which one to use, so I asked my wife, she was not much help!

Let's try this one...

PS Thanks for all the great comments! I hoped to get a ribbon with this, but somehow I knew Alex and DrAchoo would beat me to the line :)
This was such a stunning scene and by far my best stab at a landscape. Here are some outtakes

Nothing special, just a polarizer. (Dad is getting out of the house more often :))

you have pulled off the difficult task of getting a beautiful landscape shot in portrait orientation masterfully with the help of various shades of green and blue. Wait a sec...there is some pink too. 9
ps: Sky is just a little too much for my taste though.

Yes it is! And absolutely breathtaking. Flawless in every way: the light and exposure. The colors, which aren't too over-saturated like some. The composition, and the scene itself. And last but not least: my score: 10
