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.

I think that is Orion’s Belt on the top right.

Sailing Regatta

There is a sailing regatta on at Zandvlei this weekend, and all the small boats are out. Of course I was there to capture it.

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.
