About the Book
The remarkable village of Franschhoek, about an hour's drive from Cape Town, is surrounded on three sides by beautiful mountains. Overhead and in the background, ever-varying clouds and fogs create crabs' claws and leopards' spots, tablecloths and filigrees, tumbling gray waves and remote white accents in the highest of African skies.
This book captures the diversity of the clouds and mountains of Franschhoek's—and in the process, moods of nature that become your own.
