A shot taken as I was climbing up through the Silvermine reserve on my way home. I had been out looking for street shots in Wynberg (a suburb of Cape Town with a heavy mixture of grit and chic), but there had been none of the hard low light I was looking for.

 

Suddenly as I was driving over the pass, the sun broke through, and illuminated the patch of trees in the foreground, and the ridge in the middle, making quite a dramatic scene.

 

This area is around a 20 minute drive from the centre of Cape Town - there are not many cities with an area this beautiful, so close to the metropolis. You can see Table mountain in the background (the horizontal ridge). The city bowl is just on the other side.

The scene 20 minutes after sunset, looking away from the sea. A 4 minute exposure for the water and rocks and 90 seconds for the sky. Taken on my E-P5 Olympus with a tiny travel tripod. It was so dark at the end I needed a torch to get back (to the lights you see in the centre of the frame). The out-of focus material at the bottom of the frame is actually foam, which was bobbing around, and doesn't give the same effect as smoothing water.
