Morning sun basking at Rietvlei – Flickr pic of the day
Luke says, “Taken from the banks of Rietvlei, this image captures a typical summer’s morning in Cape Town. While the birds bask in the early warmth, commuters can be seen heading into town against the beauty that is Table Mountain and Lion’s Head.
“These are the beauties that we Capetonians are privileged to witness while experiencing everyday life in the Mother City. I think this picture captures our quality of life,” he continues.
Rietvlei Nature Reserve, located off Pentz Drive, Table View, is a wetland area perfect for viewing a diverse range of bird species, including large flocks of flamingos and pelicans. Visitors can also canoe and water-ski on the lagoon. Tel: + 27 21 557 5509.
