Someone once told me that the most beautiful places on earth are sites where the sea and the mountains meet the sky. One prime example of such site is Table Bay Harbour, Capetown where the sea meets Table Mountain and the blue, blue sky.
I’ll let the photographs speak for themselves. (Click on each photo to see a larger version in a new window.)
That speck you see on the clouds up there is a seagull; it’s not some piece of dirt on my lens ;)
I love the quaint little buildings and colourful boats and ships that dot the harbour. I think they give an added element of interest to the photographs.
And in case you haven’t noticed, Table Mountain in all three photos is, more or less, in the same spot, i.e. Victoria & Alfred Waterfront. All I did was walk a few paces between each photo. Those few steps allowed me to capture a postcard-perfect photo each and every time.
If these photos don’t succeed in making you want, crave, desire, long for, and get hell-bent on going to Cape Town, I don’t know what else will. Except perhaps some photos from the top of Table Mountain next time ;)
All photos straight out of the camera, totally untouched save for re-sizing and the addition of my site’s URL.
