    This is the last image (See what I just did? I called it an image, just for the purists!), from my Cape Town trip.
    This image stretches from Green Point on the left to Table Mountain on the right and the City of Cape Town in the middle, clearly seen is the table-cloth running down Table Mountain one of the “new” 7 wonders of nature.

    I had everything planned and it showed. Well not everything, the clouds and the freezing cold wind that made me wish I had a beanie were far from planned.
    The point I am trying to make is, planning helps, more so when you have limited time at a location.
    When travelling, take your tripod, camera and a couple of lenses and plan what you will be shooting. Check the weather, sunrise and sunset times, how long to get there, where to shoot from, will you need a beanie?
    I take my 24mm pancake everywhere, it is often accompanied by the 10-18mm and when I can a 24-105 or equivalent.

    What gets more complicated than an HDR?
    In my books, a blue hour panoramic scene with moving clouds, the conditions keep changing by the second. In this case, I was very conservative and decided that a 2 photo panoramic would do, since each was 30 seconds I really did not know if it was going to work.
    It did!

  • Cape Town by night

    Cape Town by night

    Click image to see larger/full version
    Lately, I have been attracted to night lights, I was down in the fair city of Cape Town and planned to shoot for the top of Signal Hill, which as this photo and the next 2 will profess, I did. This was not without some challenges. Little di I know it was going to be freezing up there, I had a jacket but nothing to cover my ears, this resulted in an unpleasant experience.
    The results were worth it, though.

    Randomly chosen by fellow photographer Russel Harris from my Blue collection.
    Before 1Fox – The Sheds was hip and filled with good food there was just the derelict abandoned buildings of 14 Alexander Street.
    Today, it has been recycled and houses a food market, a micro brewery and much more.
