Serenity in Blouberg – Flickr pic of the day
Stiaan says, “This image was taken recently in Bloubergstrand. I saw the clouds as I left work at 17h00 and knew I had to get down to the beach to take a few shots of the sunset. I got there just as the sun was disappearing below the horizon; I had to set up my camera quickly!
“Winter sunsets are beautiful here in Cape Town and the light was perfect. This particular image is a composite of two images. The top one is taken at a shutter speed of 1/20s at f/4 and the bottom one is 13s at f/22.”
Bloubergstrand is the place to take postcard pictures of Cape Town and Table Mountain; it’s also a great place to go kite-surfing. Just 20 minutes from Cape Town city centre you’ll find a beautiful beach on the west side of Table Bay.
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!
