Moonrise

One of the side-effects of the ongoing loadshedding in Cape Town is beauthful skies at night. On this evening my suburb was in total darkness, but you can clearly see that the next-door neighbourhood had light. So I managed to shoot this wonderful shot of the moonrise with a few start in the background.

I think that is Orion’s Belt on the top right.

Old Cart

I saw this wonderfu old cart on our recent travels to Krakow, Poland. It was just outside the hotel, but I love the old-world feel to it. I very much doubt that is has moved in years and it is unlikely to move again. But it looks lovely.

Penguins

You can’t visit Cape Town without a visit to the Penguins in Simon’s Town. The tourists live them, but I also has a friend whose house is in the beach and they regularily have penguins vising their house and nesting in their lounge!
They are really cute, but they stink as well!

Table Mountain from Robben Island

A view of Table Mountain from Robben Island. This would make a great spot for a braai I think.

Full moon

Here is my contribution to Sunday evening’s full moon. This is the closest the moon has been to earth in 20 years. I popped down to the lake to get the shots.

This one was a much longer exposure of the swings with the bright moon above (you can see me and my tripod bottom left).
