Kalk Bay storm – Flickr pic of the day

The power of nature is clear to see in this dramatic photograph of the Kalk Bay Harbour during a storm, taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Keith Lyle aka Stanleyace.

Keith says, “Who would have thought that we would experience a thunder storm during the night of October 25, accompanied by a 130km/h south-easter?

“Well, those winds built up huge swells in False Bay and by the time I drove past Kalk Bay the next morning, the harbour was being pounded by these huge seas. I just had to pull in with my trusty camera and try to capture the atmosphere on the quayside!

“It’s just a pity that this pic doesn’t come with sound, as the thumping of those unstoppable waves as they crashed into the immovable breakwater was truly awesome,” he continues.

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!
