Cape Town by night – A Cape Town Tourism photo essay

All these images of Cape Town at night are part of an ongoing project that I’ve titled “0.125°” (the degree of Earth’s rotation in 30 seconds). All these images have an exposure time of 30 seconds, meaning that the shutter was open for a half a minute.

Additionally, all these images are multi-picture panoramics, meaning that they are composed of two or more photographs.

This picture of the Green Point Stadium was taken from Signal Hill on a very calm night. It is one of many panoramics that I have made from pictures of the Green Point Stadium since construction began.

This panoramic was taken from the summit of Lion’s Head around full moon (there are always scores of people on Lion’s Head around full moon).

This image of Camps Bay is one of my best and was also taken from the summit of Lion’s Head around full moon. The detail of each individual house is discernible when viewed at full resolution.

Hardly ever do you get panoramic images looking anywhere but at the horizon. In this image, I managed to get a shot of the street from the top of a 10-storey building.

It is difficult to get a decent city skyline from inside the city. The trick is to get on top of the tallest building possible. I’ve only managed a 10-storey building thus far.

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!
