Picture taken at Hout bay, which is not too far from Cape Town, South Africa. Hout Bay (translated "wood bay") must be one of the most beautiful places I've ever been to.
The boys in the foreground are from the local population, which are mostly fishermen that work in the harbor.
In the background is Chapman's Peak. Chapman's Peak Drive is probably one of the most scenic drives you can ever hope to take. It is currently closed for renovations, but I've heard that its re-opening in November this year.

Excellent shot, the colors and shades are vibrant, the scenery is a real witness of the every day life. Well seen!

Die mooiste Kaap...I love this scene, it makes me homesick. This is SO lovely, especially the harbour wall.

Very nice photo. Good composition and colors. The children playing add a nice feeling to this shot.
