Sunset near Komani

Or Queenstown as it was known previously
The pictures were taken from the top of the Nonesis Nek Pass on the Road between Komani and Cacadu (Lady Frere)

The dam here is the Cacadu Dam
Cacadu which means “Bulrush Water” and is the Xhosa name for the White Kei River
Part of the cutting of Nonesis Nek Pass

Lunar Eclipse 21 January 2019

There was a total lunar eclipse in in January this year but being in Cape Town we would only see the start before it slipped below the horizon.
I was not convinced it would be worth my while but in the end it turned out to be quite a good call to get up at 4:30 and head up to Signal Hill.

Hitting the horizon
During the eclipse a boat when through and provided an art photo.

Birding on the Symphonia

We went on a cruise with 2000 other birders looking for pelagic birds.

We got some really great shots and had a really good time. We left Cape Town in the late afternoon

Lions head and Table Mountain

The sunset was marvelous

Then next day, the birds

And then back again.

There is a video here
