    Hi All

    I am so inspired by all you beautiful photos that I decided to try it myself. Although my guesthouse is in a suburb I think my garden will do the trick. Only problem - I also struggle to take part. Martin - I tried to follow your instructions, but I could not find the 'how it works', 'rules' or anything else. Now I feel embarrassed.

    Can someone help?

    Regards

    I do not have a sea view or a mountain view, but this is what you can see from your kitchen or bedroom! I am very proud of my garden that survives with little or no water. We save all water from the laundry room and this is what we use for the garden.

    Hi Guys,

    Better late than never. Here is my photo taken from the patio of one of our Lodges at Crystal Springs Mountain lodge in Mpumalanga. All of our lodges have Mountain, valley and gorge views. The photo honestly does not do it justice.

    Wilma, VERY impressive. Especially without water, it's such a nice view. 

    Keep well all!

    Thanks! 

    I visited your lodge once and I can confirm that the views are spectacular. Absolutely one thing South Africans can be proud of - our landscapes.

    What about a competition about MOST CREATIVE IDEAS!!!!

    Hi Wilma, thanks for sharing your view of the garden! It's clear the attention to detail and hard work that you've put towards it - and all while conserving water. Well done!

    Thank you also to Leandri Klopper for this sweeping view of the valley. Two South African views, both equally striking in their own styles.

    Once more, a big thank you to all of those who have contributed their postcard-worthy pictures so far:

    Hi there. Here´s my contribution to the contest. After all the green Photos i´ll show you something completely different: the (winter-) view from our apartments balcony.

    We´re located 1200m above SL close to the italian-austrian border.

    Enjoy it,

    Thomas

    Hey Thomas L. (Austria) ,

    Wow! Wow wow wow, I tell you what, Wow!

    I would not mind the cold if my eyes wake up to that view every morning. What catches my eye, and tickles me completely, is how Clean the street is! It's snowy everywhere but you can see a neat grey road sliding through the middle. Suppose it's a must otherwise traveling between destinations would be quite difficult. 

    Thanks for your add! I love it. 

    Keep well (and keep warm)!
