Travel Theme : Night

Ailsa whose blog “wheres my backpack” hosts a weekly travel theme prompt, has identified this weeks theme as “night”. It’s such a diverse topic that I guess everybody who posts here, will have a few options each :-). I’ve chosen some night images of Cape Town for my post.

Nestled below the slopes of Table Mountain the City Centre gently follows the progressively shallower contours,  increasing in urban density as it makes its way towards the waters edge at the harbour or at the sea depending where in the City you are. The Mountain is not always lit up at night, though when it is, it creates a wonderful illuminated backdrop to the City lights.

Signal Hill is adjacent to Table Mountain, and a perfect vantage point for getting an overview of the City and its proximity and its context with the Mountain. I was out there not too long ago at night, with an illuminated mountain, illuminated city, and starry sky, camera in hand, to try and capture the moment. Some of these images are my submission for this weeks Travel theme “night”.

…………….the journey continues………………..

  1. These are breathtaking, 4otomo, I could look at them for hours. And thank you for letting me know where you took these shots – when I make it to Capetown I shall head straight for Signal Hill.
