Silhouettes in Gordon’s Bay – Flickr pic of the day

Gordon's Bay

This photograph of kids playing on the beach at Gordon’s Bay was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member ^Richard B^.

Says ^Richard B^: “This photograph was taken on a very pleasant, calm, winter’s evening on Saturday, August 6, 2011 at a small beach in Beach Road, Gordon’s Bay. I was sitting on the balcony of a flat across the road admiring the sunset in the distance when I noticed these three children playing on the beach below me. The calm waters of False Bay were picking up the colours of the setting sun as it slowly disappeared behind Table Mountain and the children were silhouetted against this background.

“Spotting a photo opportunity, I grabbed my camera, ran down to the beach, asked the parents for permission to take some photos, and started clicking away. The children were three sisters who lived in the area and were visiting the beach for an hour or so. Once they became used to me taking photos and stopped posing they continued to play in the waves, oblivious of me.”
