St James tidal pool – Flickr pic of the day
Alison says, “I was inspired to take a drive along False Bay with my camera on a beautiful day, after a couple days of bad weather.
“I took this photograph at the St James tidal pool, where there were many others enjoying the sun. These boys were walking along the wall, trying to keep their balance and not slip off before they dived into the pool. I took a couple of shots with my wide-angle lens and particularly liked this shot because of the boys’ intense concentration and almost identical posture.
“For me Cape Town is the ultimate destination for a photographer due to the diversity and variety of photographic opportunities. It is stunningly beautiful and you don’t have to travel very far for a complete change of scenery.
“I enjoy shooting portraits and landscapes, and always try to challenge myself to find an unusual viewpoint or incorporate something transient when taking shots of popular landmarks, as I find these photographs convey more character and are, of course, more personal.”
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!
