The Twelve Apostles above Camps Bay.
The other side of the Neck, Cape Town to the north east, with Devil's Peak and Table Mountain above, with the Tablecloth pouring over.
Silverleaf trees on the slopes of Lion's Head
Nothing to do with terraces. Last night I dreamed about this coast, as I do every now and then - the Camps Bay road beneath the Twelve Apostles. In the dreams there is always water rushing over the road...
These pictures are from January, when I climbed Lion's Head with my cousin Andrea Weiss and her daughter Mary to see the comet over the Atlantic in the west, to the left of the just-set sun. It was stunningly beautiful, and I repeated it the next night with my parents, when Venus shone at the tip of the sickle moon's arc. We drank red wine and ate our picnic, with people passing us every now and then on the path, some quite unaware of what was about to happen.
