Daily scene on the Seine


Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - TRAVEL 2013 - TRAVEL WRITER

CON­GRAT­U­LA­TIONS to Krystyna Sherry of Wyn­berg for her pic­ture of daily life along the Seine in Paris, France.

She says: “We vis­ited Paris on our way back from Bur­gundy, be­fore head­ing to Lon­don. The weather was per­fect so we spent the af­ter­noon strolling along the south bank of the Seine, from Ile de la Cité to Champs de Mars, where thou­sands of tourists come to ad­mire the Eif­fel Towel.”

Sherry wins a mid-week stay for four at Mon­tagu Springs.

The run­ners-up are Ly­dia Lac­erda of Monte Vista for her pic­ture of Cove in Ire­land, and David Mor­ley of Bothasig for his pic­ture of the Buf­fel­s­jag dam, just out­side Swellen­dam.

Lac­erda and her hus­band vis­ited her el­dest son in Ire­land. “We hired a car and drove round Ire­land, with my son point­ing out all the scenic places.

“We came across this very quaint town, Cove, and I couldn't re­sist snap­ping the colour­ful build­ings – so cheer­ful in an oth­er­wise mis­er­able cli­mate.”

Mor­ley vis­ited a farm called Umshanti, which means peace on earth, just out­side Swellen­dam. “We had per­fect weather and this re­flec­tion in the Buf­fel­s­jag Dam was like glass, not a rip­ple, it was ab­so­lutely stun­ning.” Com­pe­ti­tion rules: ● All photographs must re­late to travel, and you may en­ter as many times as you like.

● Photographs must be e-mailed to travel@ inl. co. za and marked “Photo com­pe­ti­tion”.

CHEER­FUL: Cove’s colour­ful build­ings are a bright spot in Ire­land’s dreary weather, says Ly­dia Lac­erda.
