This time of year is amazing for going out on the Vlei for a paddle in my Kayak. It is warming up, and you still get a lot of wind-free afternoons to enjoy the water.
And for the first time in years, the Flamingo’s are back. They are in just about every river and lake in Cape Town at the moment; it is great.

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.
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.
