Another Walk through the Bush

The bush on the Eastern Coastal region of South Africa where we live sometimes takes on an almost jungle-like appearance. Did some bird watching recently and took these images of the bush.  As you may know I always find walks through this bush invigorating, soothing and rather mystical.






About Don

My name is Don Scrooby and I live in the United Kingdom. I have a deep love for nature and open spaces and one of my great loves in life is sketching, particularly in pen and water colour and occasionally in pencil. I’m quite new at the art and I sketch mainly from photographs I’ve taken, but also enjoy outdoor sketching. My sketchbooks, although no great shakes, are important to me and I decided to create my blog in order to share some of their contents with those who may be interested.

    You’re right…it looks exactly like a jungle! Whodathunkit…I never imagine down under to look this way. One day, I’ll get to see it for myself, and I can’t wait! Amazing Don.

    Very primordial. I wouldn’t be surprised to see a dinosaur stomping through the bush.

    Your bush has a good set of lungs there Don. Luscious deep green inviting and tame.

    At the same time your bush evokes visceral fears that behind the curtain of foliage is a dark world of shadows that continues to the end of the earth.

    Both responses make me feel alive. I’d gladly walk with you in such a place. As long as your in the lead, just in case one of nrhatch’s dinosaurs are hanging about.

      Calvin, as I have said, you always have a marvellous way of looking at things. “Shadows that continue to the end of the earth” – now that’s quite a thought. Next time I’ll get behind that curtain and tell you what’s there, maybe even one of Nancy’s dinosaurs. 🙂


  7. Beautiful bush photos, lush and rich.
