Canola Festival in Swellendam


Every year, Swellendam is painted yellow with an abundance of Canola Carnival festivities: various music acts, productions, outdoor activities in Swellendam’s scenic surroundings and local produce are featured so as to celebrate Swellendam’s history and to promote local business.

I accompanied a group of interns there to learn more about wine, relax, breathing fresh countryside air and to enjoy quality time in the canola fields perfecting both our landscape and macro shots. We entered our photos into a photo competition held at the carnival and both Louis Pieterse (my friend and colleague who runs the internship program) and I won prizes in this competition.
