The Cape coast of South Africa has a charm that’s actually quite easy to explain: great food, friendly people, incredible landscapes, amazing wine… I could go on! If you’ve ever considered a trip, then I hope my humble few shots here may push you over the edge. I have a few more shots from Cape Town to process – but am in Sydney this weekend and caught a few cool sunset shots last night, so may post those first! Click on the images below to see in full scale.
Above: “The Fairest Cape”. Some shots are technically pretty difficult to execute. This was one of them. A setting sun, moving ocean… and 24 individual shots to get this final image. I titled it “The Fairest Cape” because it captures so much of what a true Capetonian would reflect on when thinking about home… Table Mountain, the Atlantic ocean and beautiful sunsets!
“This World’s Wonder”. Table Mountain was recently named as one of the new 7 natural wonders of the world. I woke up early for this shot and headed out with my trusted 10-stop filter. I setup and captured this shot… a 3 minute exposure… which smooths out the sea and focuses the eye on the rocks in th foreground and Table Mountain in the distance.
”Change In Style”. Only in Cap Town do you have such a colorful array of beach huts… for changing! The conditions were actually quite perfect for this shot – although a bit windy! The sun had just disappeared behind the mountain – and so I was able to evenly expose this 6 shot panorama as I looked down the line. The sky was also nicely blown out, which helps to keep the focus on the huts.
Hope you enjoyed!
