Picturesque Stellenbosch – Flickr pic of the day

Stellenbosch scenery

This photograph of a scenic view near the Stellenbosch Golf course was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Thys Visser.

Visser says, “I currently work in Technopark (just outside Stellenbosch, towards the Strand and Somerset West), arriving at around 7:30am on the premises for the past six years. Every time, both Mother Nature and the Stellenbosch morning always have a surprise [in store], in that the spectacular sunrises are always different, even after I [have] captured so many of them.

“In this one, the combination of rich colours and various textures, both of the dissipating jet vapour trail and the early winter sunrise behind the trees (next to the Stellenbosch Golf Course and with the Simonsberg mountain as a backdrop), provided an interesting composition which prompted me to capture this one in both normal and HDR.

“I feel that one should appreciate nature in all its finest moments, at any hour of the day or night, just like this one, which is why I decided to share this with you.”

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!
