Changing seasons in Constantia – Flickr pic of the day


This picture capturing the beauty of the late afternoon light was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Hirohiko Okada aka 1/8 sec.

Hirohiko says, “On a sunny winter day, just before sunset, I was walking in a vineyard in Constantia. This beautiful scene shows the trees catching the sunset light, making the leaves golden. It was a very short moment.

“I recently found that visiting vineyards in winter is more romantic than in summer. Cape Town is the best place for this, with a number of wineries and wine routes. The wine routes offer awesome scenery and wine-tasting.

“But be careful not to drink too much wine, otherwise you will miss the chance of shooting such a beautiful scene!”

The elegant suburb of Constantia is situated in the Cape’s oldest winelands and is home to renowned wine estates and award-winning restaurants.

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!
