High Resolution images of the Green Point Stadium in Cape Town, South Africa

 Canon EF 70-300mm
Click on image to see a very big file  
The wind was incredible I would have been blasted everywhere and had no idea where to go
but I found a nice sheltered spot in the lee side of a wall,
 on one of the high roads on Signal Hill and took a nice series of sunset shots
A beautiful sunset and  lightening over Milnerton quite spectacular !
More of these tomorrow ..
It was a stunning sunset

I bought a new polariser for the Sigma 10-20 lens and took it once more out to see if I could improve on the images
Well this is the last one you will see from me
it was the only usable one of 12 images taken with the Sigma lens
They are very soft on the left side of the image and ok-ish on the right
 although sharp in the middle
Tomorrow I am going to change it for the
I hope this will be more to my liking

I found this on the web today its amazing !
