Photographer's Note

This was taken on a sunset evening, strolling along the Hout Bay beach..time about 18.30 still full view of sun however the fog was moving in slowly eventually covering the entire beach front...from bright and sunny to an entirely different view from where i stood. I captured this image on auto focus full color and this was the end result. will post another view of the beach to workshop which shows the fog moving in.

Hout Bay is often called the Heart of the Cape, a 20 minute drive from the Cape Town city centre, almost halfway between Cape Town and Cape Point. Houtbaai was named by the Dutch explorers, which literally translated means Wood Bay. The timber was used to help build Cape Town. Hout Bay was then divided up into two farms. Over time the farms were divided up however today Hout Bay still enjoys a rural atmosphere with several equestrian estates and small holdings. Hout Bay has become very popular as a seaside resort town with its unique location at the start of the Atlantic Seaboard and yet still only thirty minutes drive from most of Cape Towns top attractions. Hout Bay is recognised as one of South Africa’s leading destinations for local tourists and has become a popular place for international tourists to base their South African holiday.
Enjoy.
