Water

Winter waterfall

A lovely winter waterfall on my regular running route on Boyes Drive. One of the great things about running is that you see so much more that you do in a car. And no I don’t usually run with my camera, but for this run I decided to take my small point and shoot, and I am really glad that I did. It is true – the best camera is the one you have with you.

Slanghoek Lighthouse

Another shot from Sunday’s shooting; this one of Slanghoek Lighthouse in Noorthoek, Cape Town just as the sun was starting to set.

Death on a boat

This strange urban art that has appeared in one of the canals in Cape Town, apparently it is to raise awareness of the pollution in the water.

The Chris de Burgh song “don’t pay the ferryman comes to mind.

Park Bench in the moonlight

We have had some massive summer mountain fire in Cape Town over the past few days, resulting in a lot of dust in the air. There is very little nice about the damage and smoky air, a small side effect is the amazing moonrises you get as the moon shines through the smog in the air.

Parkbench in the moonlightI took this shot late last night with a long exposure to really get the colour of the red in the sky reflecting in the moonlight.

Langebaan at sunset

Yesterday I posted a photo of Langebaan lagoon on a really calmĀ morning. Although it was freezing cold, the still weather continued throughout the day, and we did not have any wind at all. We were also blessed with a glorious sunset, so I grabbed my camera (this time the SLR), and rushed down to the water’s edge to grab a shot or two.

Here are some of the results.
