As it is winter here, Cape Town – South Africa, we enjoy the mild sunlight on quiet days.

But as gardeners we want more rain than sunny days. These Metalasia bushes grow prolifically in our garden, coastal dune vegetation.

I wanted to capture the soft evening light and waited for the sun to come through between the last cloudbank and the hills, before setting. No luck. I believe, for this challenge we have to make new photographs, not using archive pictures.

I took part of a damaged bush into my make-shift studio and used a dimmed photo-light and two reflectors to simulate the soft sunlight.

Warmth, Metalasia plant
