CAPE TOWN and Western Cape, S.Africa

Taken so many pictures over the last year of my city, thought it's time to open one of these (thanks to Pule - SA Forumer).

All pics are either of Cape Town or taken within 150km of the city of the surrounding winelands etc.

Hope my photography does this gorgeous city justice, hope you all enjoy and we also hope all the soccer fans of the world will come and join us for an awesome 2010 FIFA World Cup!!!

Cape Town from Bloubergstrand...


Cape Town panoramic from Signal Hill...


New Financial district on the Foreshore...




Driving into the CBD looking towards the Green Point World Cup Stadium (under construction)...


Some new buildings in the Claremont suburban business district...


Every freeway is practically under construction for 2010!



Cape Town International Convention Centre...



Strand and Somerset West, far south-east suburbs of Cape Town...


CBD from Signal Hill...


Looking across Century City and Table Bay to the DuToitskloof Mountains beyond... still a little snow on them!


N2 (Eastern Blvd) Freeway snakes its way into the CBD...


The Victoria and Alfred Waterfront, from Signal Hill...

Some other pics of the Western Cape surrounds

The Cape in the winter... this is the time of year when the world cup is held...

Waves crash in front of a stormy Table Mountain


Sea Point and the angry South Atlantic...



N1 highway towards Johannesburg, after the rain and snow... between Paarl and Worcester


country town of Worcester and their "only" mall...


Hex River Valley (120km from Cape Town)...



Every town has a huge church in the middle... Worcester (100km from Cape Town)...


Rawsonville and the dormant vines (80km from Cape Town)...


Winter wonderland of Ceres (150km from Cape Town)...


Cape Town's infamous incompleted Froeshore Freeway


Cape Town from the Waterfront...


Heerengracht in Central Cape Town...


More of the financial Foreshore!


Driving into the winelands on the N1 freeway near Paarl (45km from Cape Town)


Interesting new or refurbished buildings in and around the Cape Town CBD...

Awesome pics - a city I love dearly and reminds me of many fond memories there ...
__________________
We looked at mountains until dawn, and then when dawn came, it was too pretty for me - there was pink and blue and gold, in the sky, and on icy places, brilliant pink and gold flashes, and the snow was colored too, and I said," Oh," and sighed; and each moment was more beautiful than the one before; and I said, " I love you, Momma." Then I fell asleep in her arms.
That was happiness then.

Cape Town International Convention Centre...

Don't know if anyone noticed, but see if you can spot the Southern Cross?
