The Beauty of the World Cup Stadium in Green Point, Cape Town at night is spellbinding....

Really ..when they have the lights on like tonight I just can't keep my eyes off it

Please click images to see large

It is also a very clear night

and we had the most gorgeous play of light just before sunset

I am sorry these simply dont do it justice

The West side of 2010 Cape Town Stadium, Green point South Africa

You can see part of the old Green Point Stadium on the left

I edited this one in Picasa and the below one in Picnik
I think I prefer the colours in Picasa
yet I do like Picnik for the easy creative possibilities

I am sure someone will be able to explain why there is a Gap here
but it isn't gonna be me :)
I am just recording it

Please let us share in your knowledge if you can explain this ?

Shots of 2010 Cape Town Stadium from the top road on the slope of Signal Hill

The red piece is used wherever they work on the roof I presume to protect the glass

Look at the facade here
Interesting....Isn't it ?

I was standing at the top of these steps, as far as I know they call it "skyway" in Cape Town
when I looked down and away from my camera, I saw this guy coming up
It is one of those moments I dont hang around
but jump in my car

Somewhere, over the rainbow There's a land where they've the most beautiful Cape Town Stadium

After some sun I could see a rain storm coming in from the West
 it moved fast to the East, leaving a clearing in the sky and suddenly the most magnificent rainbow appeared which got better and better

An absolutely fantastic sight it was

Ok I hear you think... Nice Joanne but too many rainbow pictures ...
Well you are in luck I had too little time or you would have seen the rest as well
I got tons of them :)

World Cup Cape Town Stadium: Rain stops play

Click images to see large
It will be a while before they can work during the night again
the weather has been dreadful today horizontal rain and gale force wind
Weather forecast is bad... apart from a dry Tuesday... It is not good until next saturday !

I agree Anwha D. from Phileas Fogg Travel in Cape Town
 my EOS Canon 450 D is an amazing camera :)
Imagine ! I took the above shots from my home, high up Signal Hill !
Thank you so much for your compliments, glad my blog posts are the highlight of the day in your office :)

What it looked like today ....
I saw 1 man on the roof he was there just briefly checking things ..
for the rest of the day there was no activity on the Stadium itself, there was some movement on the ground though

White capped waves crashing on the shore, grey skies, rain, wind....not very inviting to go out for a shoot
but hopefully tomorrow

The "blue" hour
