Sunset Rainbow

Sometime nature can just be wonderful .. with the setting sun we got an amazing rainbow.  This rainbow stretched from one side to the other but as a learning photographer with no wide-angle lens yet, I totally forgot to take a series of photos to stitch together for a panoramic.  Hey this is the way one learns.  Here are some of the photos.

I got this aeroplane flying in front, through :), behind the rainbow.  It was a quick “mik” and shoot so it is a bit blurry but I got the plane.

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.

DTP# 4: Two sides of the same coin.


Rainbow over Cape Town while I was driving home from work.  Those of you that know Cape Town will know these bridges – this is the half build bridges which is now earning the city lots of money being used in adverts and movies.

Two days later on my way back from Stellenbosch after dropping my son at varsity, I saw this view.  This is taken from the Polkadraai road between Stellenbosch and Kuilsriver.  Those of you that do not recognise the mountain .. its Tablemountain.

Matriek uitslae en eet met ‘n uitsig

My seun het nou net sy Matriek uitslae gekry en ek is so trots op hom.  Hy het ‘n A gemiddelde met ‘n paar onderskeidings met die hoogste punte in Wiskunde wat hy glad nie verwag het nie.  Baie geluk Heinrich.

Gisteraand het ek en ‘n vriendin by Primi Piatti in Table View gaan eet. Dit moet seker een van die restaurante wees met die mooiste uitsig in die werêld. Die fotos is geneem vanaf die tafel teen die venster waar ons gesit het.

Dit was ook ‘n perfekte sommer’s aand wat die son’s ondegang en uitsig nog mooier gemaak het.

Dit was ‘n “stunning” aand met heerlike kos, fantastiese uitsig en die wonderlikste geselskap.  Dankie R vir die aand .. jy weet hoe baie jy vir my beteken.

Went to a braai at a friend’s house and this is the sunset I captured:

Now come tell me this is not spectacular. After a great summer evening like that, I woke up to typical Cape Town winter rain in the middle of summer.  What is it with the weather in Cape Town this year?
