Holiday pics

5 June 2011

I know nothing is reputed to be more boring than looking at someone else’s holiday photos, but here are my favourites from our holiday in the Western Cape last month.

These were all taken on  the same day, our last day in Cape Town, when we went up past the cableway station and along the road that runs along the slopes of Table Mountain. It was late afternoon, near sunset, and mist was pouring over Kloof Nek, between Table Mountain and Lion’s Head. Looking the other way, towards Devil’s Peak, there was a light drizzle and a bright rainbow. We took lots of photos, but these are the best.

Then we drove back to Kloof Nek and down towards Camps Bay, and saw the sun setting over the Atlantic Ocean.

The photos are in reverse order, both in time and in my liking of them.

The next photo, taken about 10 minutes earlier, is our second favourite.

And finally, my favourite from the whole holiday — taken about the same time and place as the picture above, but just turning around and facing West instead of East.
