Sunset after rain and thunder

After the rain and thunder of yesterday, I knew that sunset must be something different.  And I was not wrong.  I took this photos looking east, opposite direction of the setting sun.  I love the picture above with the different cloud colours .. the reddish part that pick up the reflection of the setting sun the then the white pieces that was hidden from the sun.

Low hanging clouds – winter is coming

On Tygerberg Hill are some radio masks and this morning one of the masks was sticking out above the clouds.

It is an overcast day here in Cape Town and the air is starting to get nippy.  Winter is on its way but there is something not right with the weather here in the Cape.  What is this with the thunder this morning and it is not the first time this month.  We are not suppose to get thunder and lightning here in the Cape.

Sunrise and Clouds.

OWSunrise 2

This morning I took this photo when the sun came up over the mountains and the cloud formation just made it so special.  My little 3 megapixel cellphone does not do justice to the sun and the clouds.  Must really look for a decent Digital camera.

Die mooi van die natuur

Na ‘n moeilike Sondag, laat ek julle met een van die natuur se wonders.  Nee dit was nie ‘n depresiewe Sondag nie, in werklikheid is my uitkyk op die lewe steeds positief.  Wat die Sondag moeilik gemaak het is die wispeltierigheid van mense en veral vroumense. Hierdie klein koppie van my sal dit nooit verstaan nie.  Ek kan nie verstaan hoekom vrouens nie ‘n reguit JA of NEE kan antwoord op ‘n vraag nie.  Hoe moeilik kan dit nou wees om te besluit of mens wil braai of nie .. het mens nodig om daaroor te slaap (Nee, sy het toe nie saam gebraai nie). Daar word altyd oor dinge gedink en later terug gekom en in die meeste gevalle in elk geval met die antwoord wat ek nie wou he nie.

Maar even met daai wispeltierugheid kan ons mans nie sonder julle nie.  Julle maak die lewe net so damn moeilik.

Hierdie verskynsel word “Iridescent Clouds” genoem.  Druk op die prentjie om daaroor te lees:
