Sunset at Kommetjie

I had a very lazy weekend, so at the last minute I shot down to Kimmetjie lighthouse to play around with a few evening photos. This one was taken just in front of the ligthhouse, looking down towards the sunset.

Cutty Sark

From my archives, a picture of the Cutty Sark, shot around 1997 on 35mm film, scanned and final editing in 2012 in Photoshop.

In her day, she was the fastest tea-clipper in the world, and in 2007 after a massive fire she was almost no more. I love the lines of the ship, and the amazingly complex rigging.

Sunset

With the wonderful warm days we have been having, the wild flowers have been bursting into colourful blooms, and disappearing as the sun goes down. This shot is of the wild grass growing on the side of the road in Muizenberg. The verges are covered in these bright flowers as far as the eye can see. And adding that starburst effect you get when shooting directly into the sun, it makes for an interesting shot.

Langebaan at sunset

Yesterday I posted a photo of Langebaan lagoon on a really calm 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.

Sailing in Mauritius

Sailing into sunset in Mauritius; how I would love to be there right now, instead of in the cold and wet Cape Town.
