Storm force waves at Moullie Point -
late Winter '96
When the North Wester wind howls,
stormy weather is coming. This section
of coastline has had dozens of shipwrecks over the last 300 years.

Signal Hill viewsite.
Sunrise zoomed in over mountains -
The mountain ranges to the East of my
flat provide a wide variety of backdrops to a range of views,
including some stunning sunrise photos.
The mountain in the picture is Simonsberg (elevation 1200m), which lies
35km away, just behind Stellenbosch (taken with an telephoto lens
at the moment of sunrise.)
Rainbow at sunset, with only red and yellow visible -
This forms part of a series of rainbows
taken just before sunset.
Towering shadows of clouds -
This unusual shadow seemed to be cast by a distant cloud on a layer
of clouds, just before sundown. The tower of the old City Hall
forms an interesting contrast.
