I’ve been fascinated by this humble fishing shack right next to the water’s edge between Glencairn and Simonstown for some time now.
What I didn’t realise when I spotted it from the road was that the southbound train from Cape Town to Simonstown runs right past, about a metre away from the actual dwelling. I wonder if the whole place rattles like mad?
Slangkop Lighthouse is like a colossal magnet the way it keeps pulling me back to try and capture the perfect shot. I should have waited until there were dramatic clouds and a blazing autumn sky to photograph, but this iconic landscape still gives me something different every time I drive there at sunset.
It’s a little grainy as I took the shot without a tripod in very low light conditions, but the lights of Seapoint are so amazing to see at sunset, it would be a shame not to share. Taken from the foothills of Signal Hill.
Occasionally we all need to turn things down a notch or two. To take time out to smell the flowers as it were. Or in this case, to switch to super slow shutter speeds to catch the Kalk Bay harbour sentinels flashing simultaneously.
It isn’t as easy as it might look as the lighthouses aren’t synchronised, but in doing so, I also managed to capture my first ever “misty wave action” effect 🙂
