Neethlinghof Winery - The Avenue

 

  • Grapes first planted 1705
  • Trees planted mid 19th century
  • Trees cut down in 1914 to service wood shortage during WW 1
  • Stone Pines planted post war.

Trees planted in mid 19th century perhaps would have not reached the maturity of the trees in the original picture

No information on trees planted initially - will visit Stellenbosch Museum & Library after the holiday.

 Did enjoy a venison steak and a bottle of Malbec before I left

@Kim, I'll leave that choice to you :) It might depend on your camera

I can do Simonstown ones but the South-Easter is pumping at the moment!
Do you want the panoramas in one or two seperate photos as originally done?

That's great! Let us know how you get on with recreating the focal lengths as well as the rest of your experience in a blog post. We don't know much about the lenses used apart from the manufacturer. We only know of one particular lens (a rectilinear wide angle) that they had on board, but they didn't purchase it until Hong Kong, which is why there are so many "panorama" pictures.

I will have time next week to go and duplicate the Table Mountain and Simonstown photos. I should be able to get the exact spots, and try to match the focal lengths.
