Lots of people have said that my recent Kalk Bay Harbour shot would make a nice painting, well with a little help from a friend (PhotoShop), here is the watercolour :-) Which version do you prefer?
Fishing boats in Kalk Bay Harbour
I shot this picture on the way to dinner at the Harbour House Restaurant last night, where I had a fantastic piece of yellow-tail for dinner. This is one of the most photographed places in Cape Town, and even though I have taken hundreds of pictures here, I still cannot resist taking another few pictures every time that I come here.
This shot of the harbour is taken from the small beach that is accessed through the subway at the bottom of Boyes Drive. I took it through one of the arches of the railway line bridge. It is a very nice (and surprisingly uncrowded) beach to relax on.
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.
