Spring. The season of birds singing, new life, flowers and budding fresh green leaves, buzzing bees and fluttering butterflies and dragonflies. For many photographers, spring and fall are the most beautiful times of the year. In the spring, the wintry cold gradually increases to a pleasant temperature, the somewhat monotonous colors of winter are exchanged for a fresh color palette. The nights can still be quite chilly and as a result there can still be a light morning mist in the morning. Conditions in which solar harps can occur in the forests.
The Kaapse Bossen are located near Doorn, on the Utrechtse Heuvelrug, in the province of Utrecht. It is part of the Utrechtse Heuvelrug National Park, which stretches from Driebergen to Rhenen. The Kaapse Bossen consists of a natural and varied forest with winding forest paths, historic church paths and stately beech avenues. This results in a great variety of animals and plants. There are different types of woodpeckers, hawfinch, tawny owl and pine marten. In autumn, mushrooms shoot up everywhere, in all colors and shapes.
In the area you will find many traces of the past: burial mounds, historic paths, old border walls and country estates. After returning from the South African Cape, the Swellengrebel family bought this area around 1750, which at that time consisted of heathland and sand drifts. They gave it the name Kaapse Bossen. Special features in the area are also the Stenen Tafel, the Doornse Kei and the lookout tower De Kaap.
