To Cape Good Hope 4

South Africa
From Cape Town to Cape Good Hope

Travelling to the southest tip of the African continent, one of the most amazing and fascinating happenings are the extreme and sudden atmospheric and weather changes that are reflected and usually preceeded on the sky with peculiar and grandiose cloudy formations abruptly emptying into torrential rain...
Another very entertaining spectacle is to follow the bizarre morphology of the coast as it unfolds becoming gradually denuded from any element of green plant and finally reduced to stones, pebbles and rocky formations to the very far end of the horizon where the seashore can be faintly seen agitated and foamy...The colours of all these elements compose a very fascinating cadre hardly depicted by a camera lens.
In this photo and the next, I tried to combine these two environmental elements in almost consecutive shots.

    A nice photo describing this very special landscape very well. The Cape National Park is a wonderful place, a bit rough at times, but you can make endless walks on deserted beaches. One of the best trails I know is the "shipwreck trail" that leads along the shoreline of the western coast near the cape point. Those many shipwreck sites there tell sad stories. But it's a fantstic place for a photographer.
    regards, Jost

    what a beautiful potpourri of colors in the stones and pebbles! and the image finally makes me understand why it was named the cape of good hope: drive, zest and hope – it's all in the buoyant light and in the geyser-like cloud! greetings, sabine.

    As you say Aleander, not easy to do with a camera and lens, but two fine shots non the less.
