The Arum Lily is one of those flowers that appears almost overnight all over Cape Town in winter. Ground that was just tall grass and fynbos suddenly comes alive with fields and fields of these large and sturdy flowers.
They are big and beautiful, and they last for ever. Please note that it is illegal to pick arum lilies 50m from a road and you need permission from the land owner. Most arums for sale in our city are picked and sold illegally.
These shots were take on the side of Baden Powell drive. Just drive down the road and you will see them everywhere.
I caught this shop driving onto the M5 on the new the Koeberg Interchange flyover. I was crawling rather than flying, so I had the opportunity to catch this shot. The cranes are used to load and offload containers in the container terminal of Cape Town Harbour.
These are the same cranes that I caught in this shot from the helicopter a few weeks ago.
Two surfers walking up the beach after a day’s surfing. I am not sure if I like this picture or not – I would love your feedback.
It was taken at Muizenberg beach at about 5:45pm
Muizenberg Beach taken from the top of Boyes Drive. From this height, you can truly see the magnificence and size of the beach. It literally goes on for miles. In the front, all the little dots are people surfing in the waves.
In summer you cannot move because of the crowds, and of course the traffic can be a little crazy, but on winter days like today it is truly magnificent.
We sometimes take the dogs for walks on the beach, you are allowed to and the dogs (and all their friends) have a wonderful time running and playing in the waves.
