Beach drama at Cape Point

Beach drama at Cape Point

Randomly chosen by fellow photographer and Joburg Photowalker Palesa Diale from my Blue collection.

On the day this photo was shot the Cape of Storms lived up to it’s reputation.
It was stormy and cold but we braved it all and came away with the goods.

Photo 10 the 2016 Collection

Wide-angle photography is not easy, sure when it is a landscape or cityscape, point, frame, shoot and voila!
But there is so much more to it than that, the finer details, the wide scope of life and more, much more.
My wife, Geraldine, is so good at finding these, I often think she is a natural. She will deny it but she does have an eye for it.

Voortrekker Monument at Sunset

Voortrekker Monument at Sunset

Photo 9 the 2016 Collection

With the coming Pretoria wide-angle photowalkI thought it would be wise to scout the area and make sure everything was accessible, that there is enough subject matter to shoot and that we can get the sunset!

It would have been nice to have clouds as clouds make for better sunsets but this image of the monument speaks for itself, I think we are going to have loads of fun.
I am also practicing my Photoshop skills with a tablet, it is so much easier that a mouse.
Layering 6 images manually is not the easiest thing in the world though.

Kelp

Photo 75 of 356 of the 2015 Collection

Somewhere on the Olifantsbos Shipwreck Trail my wife, Geraldine, knelt and started shooting kelp on the beach, it was drizzling and we nearly cancelled the photowalk.
This is how it starts, vision, I have never been able to see like she does, I doubt I ever will.

Everyone, gets to the top of the volcano trail and is left in awe from the sight of the cone and then you turn around and even a grander sight awaits you!

Plaine des Osmondes

Plaine des Osmondes

Photo 70 of 356 of the 2015 Collection
Yet another panoramic view from Le Piton de la Fournaise.
We were concerned about the accumulation of clouds but these tend to evaporate quickly over the intense heat of the Plaine des Osmondes.
The black solidified lava flows heat up and literally cause an updraft.
Unfortunately the volcano was very quiet whilst we were there, so I could not shoot an active lava flow.
