It was a hazy evening but I was hoping the sun would break through
Unfortunately it didn't
Table Bay Hotel (5 star) with the blue roof and the super yacht
Rising Sun moored
along the quayside in front
You can just see the stern of the Rising Sun at the top of the photo
All the above photos are from yesterday
but soon lost interest and wandered outside in search of Haagen Dasz ice cream
and did a double take when I saw the sky /sunset ! Ofcourse I whipped my camera
out of my bag in seconds but had no tripod with me
I will get a gorilla pod for my SLR
I have a small one already for my Point and Shoot very handy
when I am at a concert for example or traveling
Aww ...if only I had had my tripod with me :(
Rising Sun (yacht)
The yacht is the 6th largest in the world with a length of almost 138 meters (453 ft).
It reportedly cost over US$290 million to build.
Everything looked like it was brand new !
Capetonians are pretty blase about these kind of "touristy" shots
but not me Guv :) There are things I can never get enough off and this is one of them :)
Just FYI...The yacht has :
82 rooms on five stories with a total living area said to be in excess of 8,000 square Onyx countertops Jacuzzi bathrooms A gymnasium/spa and sauna An extensive wine cellar A master bath/bedroom an indoor swimming pool A private cinema with a giant plasma screen 3,300 m² of teak-layered deck space A basketball court on the main deck (can be used as a helicopter pad if necessary)
I had no tripod and the light was fading fast + the bridge
I stood on,was wobbling with people stomping by :)
so I am surprised it came out at all !
From the garage roof
I gate crashed a cocktail party but didnt steal any canapes :)
The website Blogger is playing up
I am battling with the alignment
of my text and images
So it looks messy now Grr !
