Photographer's Note

HOUT BAY or Houtbaai the bay, the beach and the valley is unique in South Africa.

Just close to the shanty town that is featured in my other pic 'Where They Live', lies this sheltered bay where the world famous scenic route Chapmans Peak Drive meets with Hout Bay's working harbour and mountain ranges form a green valley with mountain streams and rivers, ancient trees and rural ambience. This is an area which is literally surrounded by more than 1000 square kilometres of National Parks - most of which are World Heritage sites.

This is typical of South Africa - where the rich and poor share the same surburb.

What a contrast.
