Cape Town is one of the most magnificent cities i have visited. The view from Table mountain is amazing, Lion`s head mountain in the middle and Robben Island at the top right in the picture. Excellent food&wine are xtra bonus in CT:)Table mountain is easy accessible with the Table mountain cableway in case you don`t want to do it the hard way: Climbing!
Harsh light in this scene, I would suggest you to be here early or late in the afternoon in case you prefer softer light for your pictures.
Happy New Year!

A well composed picture of this sky lift taking people to the mountain top.The view from there must be fantastic.I can`t see anything that can be associated with a lion but it is a good picture and I thank you for sharing.

Med rätta är detta en berömd utsikt, ur alla möjliga vinklar. Ja, få städer lär väl ha ett lika fint läge som Kapstaden, men det är mest Taffelberget och några små uppiffade hamnkvarter man ser bilder av, inte så mycket från mitt i centrum. Det är nästan lite märkligt att se Robben Island så till synes nära land, och ändå så i praktiken omöjligt att rymma från. Jag tycker du klarade det hårda ljuset bra, även havsdiset, och linbanevagnen är bra placerad med ostörd blå bakgrund.
Gott nytt år till dig också och familjen.

what a beautiful view!
I doubt that I'll ever travel to South Africa (or to any other African country) so I will enjoy it in photos - in this photo, in particular :) Excellent POV and DOF giving us a notion of what it feels like to be there... yes I agree: in mountains it's best to be either early in the morning or some time after 3 PM...
Gott Nytt År ! :))
vi ses, hopefully!

Happy New Year!
The ride to the Table Mountain must be very exciting. The view from the top is truly breathtaking. It's a very nice picture.

En imponerande utsikt! Du har också en väldigt fin fördelning mellan förgrund och bakgrund i bilden, det finns ett enastående djup här. En mycket fin bild.

unusual place and view from Cape Town. Good shot from fine POV. Interesting informations also. Photo I like.
Have a great New Year 2014!

Good evening Boa,
Overwhelming sight from the high point over the sea and the unique rock formation, imaginary lion's head it is.
Fine clear shot collected, even with the mist prevailed.
Didi (60590) 2014-01-08 8:47
Very good dominant point of view in this magnificient place
It's a good position to make panoramic pictures
It was possible to decrease a little bit the lights
Best wishes for 2014

WOW! What a magnificent view!
I thought that Robben Island was located further from the coast.
I'd think that the climb to the top of Table Mountain requires a lot of time. Of course you can also take the cable car and afterwards walk down.
Best regards, Paul

The distance between the cable car and the horizon is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colours of the Lion's head mountain. A good management of the strong light which does not hurt to much the ouput of the colours. Have a nice day.

I can absolutely agree, this is probably the most beautiful city I have ever been to. And I haven't even been to Lion's Head yet! You were lucky to get up there on such a sunny day (it was snowing a bit when I was there) and your picture does a good job showing how amazing this place can be on a good day.
Greetings from Cape Town!

I hadn't time to climb to the table mountain. what it was a pity. here I can have an idea what I lost and remember my hotel, located behind head's lion from this angle.
