Cape Town by night As seen from Signal Hill

The first time I saw this view which is about 3 years ago, I was absolutely mesmerised by the beauty of it, what you can't see here is how the city is sitting snug inside the surrounding mountains ..Devils Peak, Table Mountain, Lion's Head and Signal Hill on 3 sides then the sea on the 4rth side
This was the blue hour....after sunset but before darkness I find it difficult to capture this time of the day,I was disappointed and always get annoyed with myself :) for not getting it right

So I went back and tried again this time waiting for total darkness but I am still not satisfied ofcourse there is a nickling voice in my head saying its the camera ! :)

My question is which one do you think is the better photograph this one or the top one ?


  1. WOW! Amazing pictures! :D

    Didn't know our city looks so lovely at night, I usually see it from eye level and not from above! :)

  2. I like both! but the top one's detail are really good!!

  3. Well you have been missing out !
    Get yourself up Signal Hill around 5.30 and start shooting There are always some people there so I even go alone !
