During this year I am taking up a challenge to post a photo a day on this blog. I am a beginner photographer hoping to learn much about my camera and how to take photos.

Friday 30 July - National Pride
There's a song about this protea - it's called a Sugarbush. In Afrikaans it's Suikerbos and the words go, "Suikerbos ek wil jou he...."
This gorgeous specimen is just opening on the shrub in our school gardens. I noticed it as we were leaving school today. Unfortunately the sun was overhead and pretty bright so I got a bit of "white out" on the top but one gets the idea. I love these flowers. They are very special - and they're the South African national flower.
