Church, in Graaf-Reinet

The first time I saw this church I loved it, but didn’t have a camera with me – we just whizzed past it on our way to the coast…so the next time, I made sure I took my camera along and stopped to capture this beautiful church.Church - Graaf-Reinet

It’s in the middle of town. We drove through on a Sunday, if I remember and the town was quiet.Church - Graaf-Reinet

I couldn’t get the it all in, no matter how hard I tried, the spire is just too tall.

The next time we passed though Graaf-Reinet, it was dark!!! I had SO hoped to be there at sunset or at least with that lovely evening light, but we were just too late. Probably because I stopped too many times along the road earlier taking photos! So this is my effort:

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERATaken from the roof of the bus! I couldn’t keep still in the blowing wind. I didn’t take any more when we passed back through, although I was tempted let me tell you! Instead I took this one from the view above the town…Amazing zoom on these cameras.
