It is a gorgeous early winter day in Cape Town. Intend taking a suburban camera walk when the golden hour arrives. However, if ever you see this sign on the car ahead of you play safe and keep a good distance.
Within the confines of the False Bay Ecological Park we find the Strandfontein Bird Sanctuary. Went there on Sunday and will admit I have never seen so many flocks of densely populated Flamingos. Not even with the naked eye could one get a clear focussed view on the masses of pink and I hope the photos below conveys some of what I saw.
The start of a new week, but for us in South Africa it is a public holiday (Workers’ Day). Nevertheless where ever you are enjoy.
Friday past we had a mother of storms in Cape Town allowing the the Cape to live up to its name the Cape of Storms. Rain bucketed down on us and the wind took care of a number of trees by uprooting them and in some areas roofs were also damaged or completely blown off the structure it covered. I the predictions of the weather prophets are correct for this evening and tomorrow it looks like a repeat is on the cards.
This uprooted tree fell side ways so the road was not blocked.
Enjoy the day.
