From Marvelous Light into Darkness | A Cape Town short Timelapse


Lagoon Beach Hotel Terrace,

_MG_1286

Lagoon Beach Hotel is not too far from home so every once in a while my wife and I like to go watch the sunset over the Atlantic ocean here. It is nice to watch the sun go down and the lights come up in the city at the foot of the mountain. The scene changes drastically from light to darkness making it all the more interesting. Having learnt how to shoot a timelapse a few weeks ago ( thanx @truthslinger ) I have attempted a few but today I will only share this 20 seconds or so captured over a period of just under an hour …

For those thinking about visiting Cape Town soon this is a nice place to stay and is worth your hard earned dollars! Meanwhile we shall keep enjoying the ambience and the sunsets! So long folks … the sun is about to set – Shabbat shalom!!
Look out for more Time lapses here soon!

One of many reasons I love Cape Town


I met my girlfriend (now my wife) on this very mountain. I therefore have a somewhat romantic attachment to it. Table Mountain, visible from almost all corners of Cape Town reminds me everyday of the day I started to live. I therefore can never get tired of shooting this Mountain 🙂 So heres to love and romance!!


‘Return to Love’


Lira
Kirstenbosch concert
straight off the back of her highly successful national ‘Captured’ tour

an immaculate performance with an emphasis on new material off her fourth, and latest studio album titled Return To Love as well as songs you know from her previous platinum-selling albums, Feel Good and Soul in Mind. Lira is an inspiration to thousands of South Africans and continues to strike a chord with her impactful songwriting, moving vocals, and powerful stage presence.

Lira’s music is defined by its honesty, soulfulness, femininity and utter joyfulness. Not surprisingly, ‘Soul in Mind’ received six SAMA Award nominations and walked away with four, including Female Artist of the Year and Album of the Year -OLD MUTUAL-

Best concert I have been to since Papa Wemba @ Beats of the season a loooong time ago in Nairobi 🙂 and closely followed by Hardstone and Kala Mashaka @floodies at Impala club a loooooong time ago!!


Capture Your Cape Town Photo Competition


I have been rather busy the past few weeks and have hardly taken any photos. Meanwhile I entered the “Capture Your Cape Town Photo Competition” where out of thousands of entries the judges have narrowed down to the top 3 in each category. I have been selected in 2 cateogories. That in itself gives me great satisfaction as a budding photographer.

To win the top price I will require some assistance from my friends (that is you and your friends 🙂 … Please vote for me by commenting on my pictures “The rush” in the my Cape town Action category, and “Surfing” in the My sunset category

These are the Photos that were shortlisted;

Camps Bay Villas


South Africa’s beautiful suburb on the Western Cape Coast that is home to luxury houses of Cape Town’s wealthiest residents. Residents here enjoy beautifully designed homes with panoramic views of the Ocean and beach and ofcourse the most beautiful sunsets!! Local life is casual and in the evening residents and holiday makers can be found enjoying sundowners at the many chic sidewalk cafés on the beachfront.

Here ends another day …


“Where were you when I laid the earth’s foundation?
Tell me, if you understand.
Who marked off its dimensions? Surely you know!
Who stretched a measuring line across it?
On what were its footings set,
or who laid its cornerstone—

“Who shut up the sea behind doors
when it burst forth from the womb,
when I made the clouds its garment
and wrapped it in thick darkness,
when I fixed limits for it
and set its doors and bars in place,
when I said, ‘This far you may come and no farther;
here is where your proud waves halt’?

“Have you ever given orders to the morning,
or shown the dawn its place,
that it might take the earth by the edges …

Do you send the lightning bolts on their way?
Do they report to you, ‘Here we are’?


Sucker for sunsets!


Am a romantic at heart … and I love watching the sun go down (to Bermuda) with my best friend … I love to be here at the beach to watch the sunset – the greatest performance of Nature. Like in a theater, but it’s free. It expands my soul in worship of the Creator! I feel like at that very moment I have connected with the Divine 🙂

Sunset,
over the Atlantic Ocean


I’ll fly away!


At milnerton beach watching the sunset … and everyone else just like you is trying to experience this golden moment the best way they know how …I can only imagine flying this ‘kite’ during such an incredible sunset!! Today’s post is a proud post. This image was created by my dear wife who is taking a keen interest in photography … apart from doubling up as a model & Tripod manager 🙂
