The Waterfront at Night


With the iconic Table Mountain as a backdrop, the V & A Waterfront is a tourist magnet for Cape Town.img_6874

It’s also the perfect place to try out night photography with my new camera and I must confess I am absolutely hooked – on night photography that is.  The crowds at the V&A can be a little much in high season. Which in Cape Town is pretty much all year round 🙂

Mist started rolling in as I was photographing the Clocktower and the canal, adding a lovely magical touch to the twilight.img_6892

Photographing the Cape Wheel and all the surrounding lights in the harbour proved more of a challenge than I imagined.  I’ll have to go back sometime to get it absolutely right.

  1. You have a big wheel in CPT too now! They are popping up all over the place! There is something about reflections isn’t there?! Did you see there is a photography walking tour of CPT through 500px and Red Bull in Sept? Worth checking out…
