Africa 2012 - Arrival - Cape Town, South Africa
Posted by Yonatan (New York, United States) on 26 April 2012 in Landscape & Rural.
I've been away from Aminus3 for the month, but never fear, it was for good reason. My wife and I went on an incredible trip to Africa, visiting Cape Town, South Africa, Chobe National Park, Botswana, Victoria Falls, Zimbabwe, and Hwange National Park, Zimbabwe.
Our trip was incredible and included so many special moments. I am very excited to share many of them with you. As you can imagine, I took a lot of pictures. A lot is actually a gross understatement. I am slowly making my way through them, first selecting those worthy to edit, and then editing them, getting them ready to show to family, friends, and of course my Aminus3 family.
I have decided that the best way to show off our trip, will be to take everybody through in a fairly chronological order. So for the next bunch of images, I invite you to experience Cape Town, South Africa and everything the city and its surrounding suburbs have to offer.
We arrived in Cape Town on 4/25/12 in the evening and checked into our hotel exhausted from the long trip from New York City. The sky was clear and I knew that this may not last, so I went to the roof of our hotel and took this panoramic of the surrounding Table Mountain. Table Mountain is composed of several peaks, from left to right: Devil's Peak, Table Mountain (the flat part in the middle), & Lion's head. Also part of this mountain is Signal Hill which I have left out of this particular panoramic.
If you want to see this picture displayed in a slightly better manner, you can click this link. I really wish Aminus3 had a better way to handle panoramic images!
If you enjoy my work you may visit my permanent website where you can view my photos.
Thank you for taking some time to take a look at my photographs. I hope you enjoy your stop at my blog.
I invite you all to visit frequently and leave comments and feedback. I would really appreciate constructive criticism that will help me improve. You don't need to be a photographer to help me, tell me what you like and don't like. If you have any suggestions of interesting things to shoot or fun techniques to try I'd also love to know.
