Good afternoon...a late upload for me today ...
We have finally closed the door on our apartment for the last time and have moved into an apartment on the canal next to the Waterfront harbour for 7 nights until we fly to the UK on the 6 th June.....its very nice and peaceful.
Thank you so much to Netta123 and to Lynne (Drighlynne) for their User awards for my big 5...much appreciated.
Yesterday I had to drive to the other side of the Bay and decided to take my camera with me. Table mountain unfortunately was hiding behind a big cloud...it was a really miserable day out. This was all I managed to capture of Cape town....I would like to have spent more time on the beach and try some long exposures but there were two vagrants hanging around and I was alone on the beach....You can just make out the big soccer stadium on the right hand side that was built for the World cup soccer...I zoomed in on V3.. we stayed just in front of the stadium. V2 another view from the same spot.
Have a nice weekend...I plan on relaxing

Magnificent clouds , especially in V2.- In V1 those stones and the branch? give nice depth to the image , and without them the foreground might have been a little empty ! -Excellent , but little sad images , Colleen !SmileSadSmileWink --- Jukka.
