Muizenberg Beach

Cds MG 9888

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.

Lakeside from the sky

From the bottom right, you can see a little of Muizenberg beach, and the exit of the vlei in to the sea.
Towards the back, you can see Marina da Gama on the right, and Zandvlei (the lake) in the middle, with the little village of Zandvlei (where I live) on the left. The Muizenberg village is bottom left.

And finally, Marina da Gama.

Sunset

Cds 123 Sunset

With winter arriving, the sun is setting a little earlier each day. Today had been quite a cloudy and windy day, with bright blue sky intermingled with large winter clouds. While driving home from work, I noticed the most remarkable sunset over the mountains, and because I just happened to have my camera with me :-), I had to stop and take a few pictures.

This is a HDR shot taken from Muizenberg beach, looking over Constantia towards the bottom end of Table Mountain.
