More than 11000km separates Iceland from South Africa, so Volcanic Craters and Glaciers are very much outside our World, and being amidst them on a trip earlier this year made it so much more apparent. More images of this memorable trip are featured on my Instagram feed – 4otomo. Out of This World
A field of more than 8000 marathon runners including some of the Elite Marathon Runners in the World, waiting for the Start of the 2017 Sanlam Cape Town Marathon held last weekend. The Cape Town marathon has the distinction of being Africa’s only IAAF Gold Label status Marathon. Moments later, the waiting was over, the starters gun goes off and the 42.2km marathon is underway.
Built in 1886 the Dom Luis I bridge, spanning approx. 400 metres across the Duoro river in Porto, conveying light rail, general traffic and pedestrians over two levels appears to be way ahead of it’s time. Both decks are suspended by a central arch of 173m in diameter. Originally used as a toll bridge, which changed in 1944, when the bridge was incorporated into the City infrastructure.
Friends or Siblings, difficult to say, but these Elephants having some fun at the Hapoor waterhole at the Addo Elephant Park near Port Elizabeth, were the centre of attention. On a rather hot day earlier this year, I was parked at the Hapoor Waterhole watching large herds of Elephants approaching the waterhole, having a drink, splashing themselves and moving on. A few of them decided to immerse themselves into the water, lots of splashing about, and interaction between these three was a wonderful encounter.
