Table Mountain Twirl

I captured this iconic view of Table Mountain from Blaauwberg beach shortly after sunset yesterday.

 

The thing that I like most about shooting coastal subjects such as this one, is that it’s practically impossible to capture exactly the same scene in the exact same way more than once. The constantly changing light, clouds, tides and waves will always ensure a totally unique image… every time you press the shutter!

 

My favorite image of the day is this one by Miles Morgan (aka mm767cap), an airline pilot from Portland, Oregon. Not only is Miles an incredibly talented photographer, but he’s also one of the most modest and humble photographers that I’ve come across on Flickr. And he’s funny too… I’m always smiling by the time that I finish reading the descriptions to one of his images! Thanks for all the inspiration over the past couple of years Miles… I hope that one day I'll be able to take photos like you do!

 

Nikon D300, Sigma 10-20 at 13mm, an aperture of f9 and a 1/40th second exposure.
