A gentle glow – Flickr pic of the day
Nikki says, “The photograph was taken on a blisteringly hot February afternoon. On returning from work, my boyfriend, Brent (in the picture) and I rushed off to Muizenberg Beach to catch the last few rays of sun before it disappeared behind the mountain. Afterwards we took a stroll to Sandvlei to see the wind conditions.
“It was a beautiful evening with hardly a breath of wind. As the sun was setting it created the most beautiful hue over the water, with clear reflections of the clouds above. Brent was armed with his camera and was caught completely unaware when this shot was captured.
“Cape Town has some of the most beautiful scenery in the Western Cape. Perhaps one just needs to slow down to a walking pace to admire the beauty of it, whether you’re behind a camera or strolling freely,” she continues.
From the nature trails of the mountain complex itself to the Peninsula’s bird and sea life – not to mention that is it the setting of the country’s most famous Botanical Garden, Kirstenbosch – there are plenty of attractions for lovers of the natural world.
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
