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.
Reflection of a jungle-gym in a huge puddle after the days of stormy weather; it look like it is in the middle of a river, doesn’t it? The huge area of water it is in is a massive puddle in a very water-logged park. I think it’s going to take weeks for it to drain (it is a lake in the background, it is not that wet).
This is another panoramic shot that I took when I was at Langebaan a couple of weeks ago. It is very seldom that the water is so calm and glass-like, it is normally full of that white horses whipped up by the South-Easter wind. It was amazing to enjoy the beautiful (yet cold) weather. It was actually perfectly calm for water-skiing, but it is a long time since I have done that, and the water would be far too cold. Click on the shot to see more detail of this wonderful place.
Some completely useless information is that Langebaan Lagoon is one of the few in the world to be made by the tides moving in and out; there is no river feeding it. It consists completely of salt water.
