Fotoeins Friday: Cape Town from the top of the Table

With the accompanying aerial cableway, Table Mountain (Tafelberg) is one of the most visited and photographed sights in Cape Town, South Africa. The flattened summit is ideal for panoramas from an elevation of almost 1100 metres (3500 feet). Above, the north-facing vista includes the Victoria and Albert Waterfront, Robben Island in the harbour, Cape Town Stadium, Signal Hill, Lion’s Head, and Sea Point, a wealthy suburb of Cape Town.

Below, the south-facing vista includes the waters of both Indian and Atlantic Oceans, nearby Muizenberg and Hout Bay, as well as the mountains stretching south along the peninsula to the Cape of Good Hope which is hidden in the picture. The line-of-sight distances to Muizenberg and the Slangkoppunt Lighthouse are about 17 and 22 km, respectively.

As a part of my year-long RTW, I made this photo on 13 October 2012 with the Canon EOS450D (XSi) camera, EF-S 18-55 kit-lens, and the following settings: 1/800s, f/8, ISO400, and 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent).
