A panoramic view of Hout Bay from Chapman's Peak. Chapman's Peak Drive can be seen at the base of the mountain. It is very picturesque road from Cape Town to the Cape of Good Hope.
Wikipedia: Hout Bay is a popular tourist attraction among both local and international visitors. There are a variety of restaurants in the village. The harbour is a worthwhile visit, as there are spectacular views of the bay and boat rides to Duiker Island and around the Sentinel. Chapman's Peak Drive is one of the world's most scenic mountain drives and has recently undergone renovations to ensure the safety of travellers using the route. The East and West forts built by the Dutch in the 18th century can also be visited, with the original cannons and barracks still standing on the slopes of Chapman's Peak. The East fort is the oldest operating gun battery in the world.
Classic view but I like it.
This time I managed to post a Large Version. See it!

Congratulations for this very nice panoramic picture. I like the colors and the composition, even if I wonder if the horizon line doesn't tilt a little bit on the right.

Magnificent panoramic scene, dear Malgorzata, shot in the spring this past year. Eighteen months earlier, you were in the East Coast of the United States about the same season, early spring. The color of the water shows up as an emerald green, and I am sure that is correct.
Warm regards, and have a good Sunday,

The large version is quite spectacular and does this lovely bay full justice. A very agreeably lit composition with pleasant natural tones.

Une photo paradisiaque qui réchauffe quand on se trouve dans l'hémisphère nord.

Although the picture is slightly tilted it is a great view with very fine colours. It's a bit sad that my main impression is that so much has been lost in the small version. The large one is really so much better and more interesting. It seems the TE format is not quite suited to such small details as the houses climbing the far hills.

So, South Africa has been your latest 'hunting ground'! The LP suits the magnificent scenery well & of course detai;s come out well in the WS. The fine blue of the sea contrasts well with the green. Excellent view indeed!
