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.)
