Dockyard cranes at sunset

Cds MG 9997

I caught this shop driving onto the M5 on the new the Koeberg Interchange flyover. I was crawling rather than flying, so I had the opportunity to catch this shot. The cranes are used to load and offload containers in the container terminal of Cape Town Harbour.

Cds IMG 9509These are the same cranes that I caught in this shot from the helicopter a few weeks ago.

(another) 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.

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.
