This is a shot of the rear of my rented Beetle near Steenbras Dam. Steenbras is located about 1km south of Gordons Bay, a few hundred meters up.
The view on Gordons Bay (little town on the bottom) and False Bay from there was breathtaking.

This is a very pleasing shot in beautiful sunset colors. The color of the earth and mountains are a wonderful contrast to the Beetle. The Beetle amid the landscape definitely transforms this from a sunset-type image to a more "real"-life or daily life shot. Thanks for sharing!
