Roggebaai Canal – Flickr pic of the day

Blog Featured Image

When the sun sets in Cape Town, the face of the Mother City changes as it lights up. This striking shot was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Damien du Toit aka coda.

Damien says, “I’ve always wanted to shoot this scene – a spectacular sight as you enter or exit the city – even if it meant standing (probably illegally) in the emergency lane of Eastern Boulevard after sunset with cars flying past, literally within reach!

“I had a very particular photo in mind before I set off: the canal in the foreground, the Cape Town International Convention Centre and adjoining Westin Grant Hotel, with Table Mountain and other central business district buildings in the background at blue hour (about an hour after sunset).

“The light conditions were perfect and, although I was shooting with a hand-held compact, I’m relatively pleased with the result and happy to share it.”

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!
