Table Mountain light trails – Flickr pic of the day


This beautiful image of light trails along Table Mountain Road was taken by our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member JD van Zyl.

JD says, “This was the first time I’d experimented with light trails, and I specifically wanted to capture the lights of the cars driving along Table Mountain Road towards the lower cable car station. It was quite an effort to lug my tripod up the chains that lead to the top of Lion’s Head, but I think the final result was worth the effort.

“I used a wide-angle lens (10-22mm) to capture as much of the City Bowl as possible and left the shutter open for about three minutes,” he continues.

With the mountains on one side and the sea on the other, the City Bowl contains the heart of the Mother City.

There really is no such thing as a dull moment if you’re in Cape Town’s city centre. There are loads of attractions and entertainment options, not to mention the beautiful scenery all around you.

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!
