Cds 125 skyline

The Langebaan skyline at sunset. I love the silhouette effect of the skyline, especially the outline of the roofs. It reminds me of a dessert oasis at sunset.


Cds 124 sunsetOk, so it was 2 sunsets in a row, however this pic is really different from yesterday’s pic.

This was taken at Langebaan, standing on the balcony of our holiday house, watching a west-coast sun setting over the lagoon. Even though winter is coming, we still get the best weather this time of the year, and it was just wonderful standing outside enjoying a wind-free evening.

Langebaan is a small holiday community about 100km North of Cape Town. It is home to the West Coast National Park, and (although I cannot confirm) the largest lagoon in the Southern Hemisphere.

I have been going there since I was a little boy, and I still find it to be an amazing place.

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.

Somebody paddeling on Zandvlei early in the morning on a very still day. The temperature ended up peaking at about 38 deg C (about 100 deg F).

On Sunday I posted a picture of a lovely summers day, and just two days later, we are having some rather unexpected rain in Cape Town. This Cape Honeysuckle in my garden seems to be enjoying the rain.
