There’s sharp ache and awareness, standing in this spot with this afternoon view of both mountains and ocean, here on South Africa’s southwestern coast. As a product of similar geographic conditions in Vancouver, Canada, the recognition seems like a remarkable coincidence some 16000 kilometres on the other side of the planet. At the tip of the African continent, this view south faces the Apostles Range towering over the affluent Cape Town suburb of Clifton and the South Atlantic Ocean.
I made this photo on 13 October 2012 with the Canon EOS450D (XSi), the 18-55 IS II zoom-lens, and the following settings: 1/640s, f/8, ISO200, 18mm focal length (29mm full-frame equivalent). This post appears on Fotoeins Fotopress at fotoeins.com as http://wp.me/p1BIdT-7pL.
