The Amazing Sunset 5 (the End): Fishermen and some more

The date is Sunday 12 May 2013 and the time somewhere between 6 and 8 PM. Location: a hidden spot along the lagoon near the village. Together with friends and a great colored family from Mount Pleasant (who also discovered this spot…) we experienced one of those numerous amazing sunsets our area has to offer. In and around the lagoon is an abundance of bird life and it is hard to make pictures without any winged friends in it… This serie provides you with a visible idea but no picture can match the experience of sitting, chatting and watching on the spot. I shot just over 200 images and only 19 survived my first selection.

The last images of this serie but not the last of sunsets I will picture.

The amazing Sunset 1: Off you go

These first pictures I took just after arrival with a 90 degree angle on the disappearing sun.

Just some shots along the lagoon

I can’t tell enough how privileged we are to live in Stanford (“Best Village Destination in South Africa”; for all who dare to discover the real South Africa beyond Cape Town). One of the ‘attractions’ nearby is the lagoon which is not only a bird lovers paradise but also a place to consider by travelers who prefer quality of life.
