Sunset over the Marina

By ColleenA
Good morning.....
Thank you so much to TrevBatWCC for his UA for my Waterbuck much appreciated.
A break for a few days from my Wildlife.....A lot of you ask about Cape Town and also where I live so thought I would share Friday evenings sunset over the Marina at our complex. V2 is looking back towards the new soccer stadium and Signal hill. V3 is our view towards Table mountain. Also views towards the CT Waterfront and lastly some boats enjoying the sunset and sundowners. We leave Cape Town and South Africa forever in 8 weeks time so have to get as many beautiful images as I can before its too late. Sure going to miss it.
Have a nice Monday

A great low light image with very nice colours.
I do like the comp with the detail.

Far better than my car.

Wonderful to see Cape Town in the evening light - what a lovely life style
and beautiful views. We will miss the wildlife images but no doubt you'll find
lots of interest in Australia.

What a lovely set,V1 just about tops them for me.Makes me a little envious that you have this on your door step.As usual your images are varied with a fresh surprise each day.I take it that these were in lieu of your drive down the coast yesterday.

The only place for natural beauty that even comes close to Cape Town is Rio. Anyone who has lived in Africa has to miss it when he/she leaves. Where you are going is very calm and safe and has its own beauty.
The light in this shot of the marina is fabulous.

Stunning set of images, Colleen. Superb comp, light and reflections.. Your condo complex looks lovely.
