Photographer's Note

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!
