When the wind blows in Lakeside (all the time), it brings the kitesurfers to the beach, and the windsurfers to the vlei (lake). Here is a pic that I captured of a windsurfer on Zandvlei. I was trying to get a sense of the speed he was moving. Hope it worked.

On Thursday we had a very foggy day, so I was unable to drive to work without a quick photoshoot stop. I love the ethereal way everything looks in the mist; it is a time when you wonder if the world has not maybe moved a little closer to that of the fair folk…

There was a beautiful winter sunrise this morning over Zandvlei.
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.
