From Green Point to Boubergstrand

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.

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.

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.

I just knew you all wanted a squirrel from Companies Garden in Cape Town, I just knew.
