A fishing boat in dry dock in Cape Town, it looks like they have been doing some maintenance to the hull.
I quite like the bright colours against the grey background.
People walking along the harbour wall in Kalk Bay. In the front of them you can see the lights of the Harbour Hourse restaurant complex. You can also just make out Fish Hoek beach on the top left.
I was going to the Harbour House for dinner, but I went there a little earlier with my camera, so I also managed to get this shot of one of the fishing boats. You can see Kalk Bay main road in the background, with Cape to Cuba (a great restaurant) just behind the harbour.
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.
Simonstown is a little village in Cape Town, It also has the honour of being home to the South African navy. Just look at the vista.
In the front, the naval dockyard, with the yacht basin on the left. The shop moored right in the middle is a retired cable-restoring vessel HMS Bullfrog, which is where I had my wedding reception!
On of the four Frigates belonging to the South African Navy seeing leaving Simons Town in the early morning.
Simons Town is the home base in Cape Town for the South African Navy.
Some photos of Cape Town harbour with the central business district in the background.
The Amber Lagoon, registered in Majuro, fully laden with cargo being pulled out of (or possibly into) the Cape Town harbour.
The Cape Town City Bowl (downtown). On the right you can see the working harbour, with the V&A Waterfront in the distance. Back left is Lions Head and Signal Hill, with the central business district on the left.
A drilling platform receiving maintenance in Cape Town harbour.
Cranes in the container terminal of Cape Town harbour. I love the toy-town feeling in the picture. However, these are real working cranes, and if you look closely you can see a few cars and trucks, giving a sense of perspective of the size of these cranes.
This is truly the most beautiful city in the world.
