Photography 9: "Harties"
Day at Hartebeespoort Dam.
These photos were taken at Hartbeespoort Dam (Harties) when we went out for a “braai” on Saturday 25 September 2010.
We went to Anty Marlie’s Cafe on the dam’s wall, where you bay your raw meat and "braai" there with fire that they supply.
It is a lot of fun and stunning nature to observe. Photography as a hobby is stunning.
Hartbeespoort Dam is an arch type dam situated in the North West Province of South Africa.
It lies in a valley to the south of the Magaliesberg mountain range and north of the Witwatersberg mountain range, about 35 kilometers west of Pretoria.

It lies in a valley to the south of the Magaliesbergmountain range and north of the Witwatersberg mountain range, about 35 kilometers west of Pretoria. The name of the dam means "pass of the hartebeest" (a species ofantelope) in Afrikaans.
This "poort" in the Magaliesberg was 'n popular spot for hunters, where they cornered and shot the hartebeest. The dam was originally designed forirrigation, which is currently its primary use, as well as for domestic and industrial use. The dam's hazard potential has been ranked high.
Hartbeespoort was previously known as Schoemansville, after General Hendrik Schoeman.
