Lovely! I wonder what the origins of the name Ceres are? Funny that you and I both have one close by.

@jamibann Issi, it is interesting to find out about origins of other town with the name Ceres. If I remember correctly there is also a Ceres in California - I discovered it when researching the earthquake that Tulbagh had in 1969 and the small one we had in 2015. According to Wikipedia there's also one in Northern Italy.
This is some info that I found on Wikipedia re the Ceres near me - "Named after the Roman goddess of agriculture, Ceres, a name which is fitting as the valley in which the town is situated is extremely fertile and is a major producer of South Africa's deciduous fruit."
Ceres in California also named after the goddess of agriculture. I cannot find out much re Ceres in Italy.
Scotland's Ceres -" The name signifies "place to the west" from (Gaelic) Siar meaning "west", probably in relation to St Andrews. Locational endings in -es are common in East Fife. Suggestions that the name originated from an early dedication of the local kirk, such as to "Saint Siris", Saint Cyrus or Saint Cyricus are now discounted." - Wikipedia

Beautiful mountain scene

I love this scene! It makes me want to get out of the city and go on a road trip.

This week for Get Pushed, I'm challenging you to do a picture that is intentionally over exposed. I accidentally did a shot like that this week and was happy with how it turned out. I thought it might e a fun thing to experiment with.

@olivetreeann this picture shows what the 'other side' of our mountains looks like. This was taken leaving Ceres. The mountains directly in front are not visible from our valley. I cannot remember exactly which range they are so I will find out and let you know. Tulbagh Valley is situated behind the mountain on the righthand side of this picture.
