A wintery weekend


Even though Cape Town is a much better summer city, I still really enjoy winter time here. I love how dramatic the sunsets are and how moody the ocean looks. I also like how a gloomy, rainy day can make me feel so deeply contemplative.

Today I thought I'd share a few photos that I took over this wintery weekend (all were taken with my phone and with a little help from Instagram): 

Pretty, but chilly, beach day

Boots at the beach (yup, it was that cold)
 
View of Table mountain from 'Sunset' beach

A lovely winter's sunset 

A paraglider flying by

A rather gloomy morning on the promenade

A random puddle full of trees and sky.



Are you a fan of winter?

  2. Such gorgeous pictures! I have never been to a beach during winter. I don't mind winter because I live in Louisiana and we have really mild ones.

  5. Such lovely pictures but it does look icy cold. Love the puddle reflection.
    I miss the cold rainy Cape winters. The Highveld winters have wonderful sunny days but it doesn't feel like winter.

  7. Beautiful photos! Especially the one of the puddle. Now I miss Cape Town! The Highveld is just dry, dull and cold during winter.
