Ever heard of a place called Melon? No? Well, the other day I discovered such a place. Melon is a siding on the narrow gauge line between the Gamtoos Valley and the Langkloof. Its basically a farming area and Melon itself is nothing more than two small buildings next to the railway line, a general dealer and two houses.

    Beautiful mix of color, composition and perspective…and an interesting place. Doesn't it make you wonder why someone would go to the trouble to formally name a tiny place like that? Hmmmmm….
