Good morning Cape Town!

Good morning Cape Town! (and Durban )!

Miller’s Point

I clambered around the rocks at the southern end of Miller’s Point Cape Town, South Africa in the gusting cold winds to find a little nookie for my Canon G3X, Joby tripod and I a few minutes before sunrise.

It was one of those blessed “once in a blue moon” sunrises where I sat for some time after shooting and thought “Oh Wow!”.

The ocean lapped the shore, the birds were squawking about, golden light was about and I soaked up all Mother Nature had to offer. The Kogelberg Nature Reserve / mountains lay in the background.

Another Day at Boulder’s V2

“Sometimes our light goes out but is blown into flame by another human being. Each of us owes deepest thanks to those who have rekindled this light” ~ Albert Schweitzer

Blowback to 19 June 2014 when I shot over to Boulder’s Beach for a sunrise shoot. I cleaned the original version up for another purpose (and also because I’ve learnt a few more tricks in the past year). The original version is my most “favorited” version on my Flickr account. If I ever go back there I want to meet some Penguins.
