Breathtaking view of WC 2010 Cape Town Stadium lit up under a full moon

Tonight a full moon lit up the scenery beautifully around the almost finnished Cape Town Stadium
Another strip of the facade was attached on this side of the stadium

This is the awe inspiring view from the new-ish restaurant on the Delaire Graff Estate estate
which includes a hotel to be opened beginning 2010
owned by the British billionaire Laurence Graff of Graff Diamonds International

I was lucky to have been invited for a 3 course lunch and although I have been to quite some wine estates
this South African farm on the Helshoogte Pass outside Stellenbosch beats  all others on sheer luxury stunning architecture and art Thankfully I didnt have to foot the bill since the prices are steep


  1. So sometimes when I write and post a comment, it disappears, so I'll try again.....
    WOW, WOW and WOW! I looked at the full moon from my kitchen window last night and saw trees with crystalized was pretty magical. Great photos Joanne...again....and the wine estate looks wonderful, I can hear the surroundings through your photos :-). Thanks again and I feel a new screen desktop background coming on...

  2. Thanks for your patience Helen
