Paragliding in Cape Town

I saw these guys paragliding yesterday just off Baden Powell Drive. It was fascinating to watch them  launching themselves off a very low cliff just above the beach. The thermals must have been very strong, because as they jumped, they almost shop up vertically into the air.

It looked so graceful and peaceful, a wonderful way to spend a still day in Cape Town.

Surfer’s Corner – Muizenberg Beach

A 3 second exposure of Muizenberg beach just before sunset. This was my first experiment with a long exposure of the sea; but I think that it came out ok.

Here is another slow-release shot in Muizenberg; you can just make out the village on the left. I live the fantasy-like almost magical effect this type of picture gives.
