Kite flying on Strand beach – Flickr pic of the day
Steve says: “We moved to Cape Town from Gauteng nine years ago and settled in Strand, near the beach and away from the hustle and bustle of the big city.
The Cape Town area is great for a photographer like myself, with such diverse subjects as beaches, vineyards, mountains and historical buildings all within a short drive. I love to take walks on Strand beach with my camera, which is where I took this photo one Saturday afternoon during an international kiteboarding event.
Another favourite way for my wife and I to spend a day is to take a drive along the False Bay coast on Baden Powell Drive to Muizenberg, down the peninsula through picturesque villages and towns like Kalk Bay and Simonstown before turning northwards and wending our way up the Atlantic seaboard, through the city and back home via the N2. This affords the opportunity to stop for photographs at many places and despite following roughly the same route, the trip is never the same twice.”
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!
