Good morning ....
Thank you for your c&c's yesterday and to Peter (ddolfelin) and Philip_H for there UA's for my Rainbow nation image....
I thought these images of table mountain would be appropriate today as we have woken up with very thick mist and three blaring fog horns.
I tok Australian friends up Table mountain a few weeks ago when there was very low cloud. I have a few different versions of the cable cars going up the mountain . the last version is an unusual view/angle of the mountain.
Table mountain has an elevation of 1085m. The first ascent by foot was in 1503 by Antonio de Soldanta. hikers still walk up the mountain today and takes a few hours.
The lower and higher cable stations were built between 1926 and 1928. It was officially opened in 1929. They have upgraded the system and cable cars 4 times since then, the last in 1997 when they designed these cars that rotate when moving so that everyone gets to see the view from each side. Tomorrow views from on top of the mountain.
Have a nice dayGrinGrin

Colleen, the composition is spot on. A very 'atmospheric' shot in every sense of the word! GrinGrin

I can still remember going up on this. I was fine until we were arriving at the top....Capetown is so beautiful, such natural beauty it is breathtaking, mind you as I went up in the cable car the breathtaking was for another reason.
Wonderful series.

Good set of travel images that brings back memories of Table Mountain. We were in Cape Town for 3 days and managed to get to the top. The cable car was only open for half a day, due to bad weather conditions, so we were lucky. Amazing views.
