Scenery

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).

Sunrise

Good morning. There was the most beautiful sunrise this morning, with the sunbeams shining down through the clouds into the mist, with the distant mountain peaks in the distance.

Cape Town Stadium

The view of Cape Town Stadium from Table Bay. It was built for the 2010 FIFA football world cup, and is used for a mixture of football and rock concerts. I still think that it is a bit of a white elephant and it costs the city a fortune to maintain, but it is still a beautiful addition to our city.

Lion’s Head

I don’t tyink that you can ever tire of the view from or the view of Table Mountain. This shot was taken from the upper cable station view a view of Lion’s Head in the foreground, with Robben Island in the distance. If you are wondering what the red packs and ropes on the right are for, the answer is abseiling equipment. Yes if you are brave you can pay to slide down the side of the mountain on climbing ropes.  While I am sure it fun I think I will stick to shooting the pictures.

Silvermine nature reserve

Note: I used Grammarly’s online plagiarism checker on this post because my grammar and spelling suck, and this tool also checks spelling, grammAr, punctuation and structure.

My broker and sister in law have been on holiday in Cape Town for the past couple of weeks, so I have spend a lot of time acting as an impromptu tour guide. So for today’s trip we decided to go for a walk around the reservoir in the Silvermine nature reserve, and for a walk along one of the many hiking trails.

My SLR was a little heavy to carry around the mountain trails so I just took my point and shoot and I think that this shot is more proof that the best camera is the one you have with you.
