Cape Town

Cape Town 

Sailing into the majestic South African city of Cape Town in idea conditions. Here we see, centre stage 'Table Mountain' with its cable-car station as a small blimp at the right-hand side of its flat top. To the right of this scene we also the 'Signal Hill' peak.
I was reminded of the the fact that I had not posted any of my African trips of 2014 on here (by seeing a shot by Rod Bally: www.ipernity.com/doc/rodbally/47622726/) and so I hope my viewers will forgave my indulgence now.
Best viewed large!

Another beautiful place as you say Daniela. I had a few from here in dear old Panoramio but had not thought to put some of them on here too. Too nice to be left unseen I think. Another place for you to book!

Wow! This brought back some memories.................I sailed into Cape Town aboard HMS Bulwark (the original, not the current one) way back in the early 70s. I remember seeing Table Mountain with a layer of cloud on top - it was wonderful. Unfortunately, in those days I did not own a camera and so have no record of it except in my head :-(

Thanks for sharing this superb image Herb!

Hi Keith, very happy this brought back pleasant memories for you. The sight of this mountain backdrop on approach is jaw-dropping. In actual fact, as we were sailing in we also had a wonderful sunrise with sun-beams hitting the cities islands. We too were expecting cloud on the mountain (its table-cloth) but it remained clear all day. We travelled to the top via the cable car late in the afternoon and saw the sun setting whilst queued up for the return car. Nice that your head recorder is still in working order :)

We were blown away by this city Peter. We are fortunate in having visited lots of beautiful towns and cities around the world but sailing into Cape Town through the sunrise into a beautiful day is a life memory, My pleasure, as usual to share here.

It is my pleasure to bring such feelings to you my friend. It was a very emotional entrance into this part of Africa. We had a magical two days here before flying on to London from here.
