St James Beach reflections – Flickr pic of the day
Keith says: “We roused ourselves early one winter Sunday to get some soft light photos and perhaps a spectacular sunrise, which is almost guaranteed at that time of year in Cape Town. We were well-rewarded from the sunrise point of view and were heading for breakfast at one of the many quaint eateries in Kalk Bay when we passed St James beach and saw a photographer’s dream shot; a partly cloudy winter blue sky and the area’s colourful beach huts reflected in clear tidal pool water.
“The thing was, every postcard, calendar, table mat and coaster has this glorious scene on it. So, after mimicking the masters, we looked for something different and came up with this image. I’m sure this has also been done before, but, this version at least leaves a little to the imagination.”
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!
