Blue skies over the Grote Kerk

Grote Kerk in Graaff Reinet
I was intrigued by the different lighting of the photos I took of the different angle of the church within a minute of each other

The Grote Kerk is an icon in the middle of Graaff Reinet, the fourth oldest town in South Africa. While on our bike tour back from the Southern Cape through the Karoo, we stayed over in Graaff Reinet. As always we wander through the streets and I take photos.
