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!!


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 🙂

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 🙂

Flowers have an expression of countenance as much as men or animals. Some seem to smile; some have a sad expression; some are pensive and diffident; others again are plain, honest and upright. Its as though flowers have a soul! Sometimes I imagine flowers smelling us back while we enjoy their fragrance …

Brewing a storm

Astronomers are greatly disappointed when, having traveled halfway around the world to see an eclipse, clouds prevent a sight of it; and yet a sense of relief accompanies the disappointment. Wednesday night was no different for me. Just when the moon was changing color 😦 a biiiiig dark cloud just covered it (so much for an eclipse tht lasted over 100 minutes!!). And for that reason I dedicate todays post to ‘clouds!’ in protest!!

God writes the Gospel not in the Bible alone, but also on trees, and in the flowers and clouds and stars

Clouds come floating into my life, no longer to carry rain or usher storm, but to add color to my sunset sky.

What colour is your sky?

Molecules and small particles in the atmosphere change the direction of light rays, causing them to scatter and resulting in colorful sunsets. If the path is long enough, all of the blue and violet light scatters out of your line of sight. The other colors continue on their way to your eyes. This is why sunsets are often yellow, orange, and red

The Cobra at Sunset

Ratanga Junction: More than 30 attractions including 24 rides ranging from kiddie rides to family rides and thrill rides for the more intrepid adventurers. One of the most challenging of the rides is The Cobra, a suspended looping coaster which catapults riders from a height of 34m along 910m of track at up to four times the force of gravity and speeds of close to 100km per hour. Adding to the thrill of the ride is the suspension of riders beneath the track, feet flying free. This ride is not for the faint-hearted (like me) … but I can take pictures of it 🙂

Winter Sunsets [Sable Square]

Winter is upon us. Sun rays, let alone sunsets are rare. The sun is distant and as the winter months approach ,it will become scarce. Clouds are heavy, everyone is gloomy and heavily dressed and generally the happiness is gone. I tend to think Capetonians are solar powered. I will therefore stop at nothing (even traffic) to shoot a glorious sunset when it does show. Maybe it will brighten someones day.
