The Wonders of Boulders’ Beach, Simon’s Town

At the end of May, my parents and I flew to Cape Town for a weekend.  Surprisingly, the weather was relatively decent (i.e., it didn’t rain 24/7!) so I managed to get a few photos which I was happy with.

The first morning after our arrival, I woke up early was able to catch the last few minutes of a beautiful sunrise.

Though the wind was howling, making it freezing outside, a huddle of penguins was making its way down to the sea.  The penguins posed most obligingly for me.



I also found this gull perched on a rock.  As it was back-lit, I decided to try a silhouette-style photo, and then converted it into black and white in Lightroom.






Later on in the day, we took a walk down Boulders’ Beach to see the penguins and dassies (Rock Hyraxes).  I found some gorgeous scenery there as well.

Many of the penguins were babies or juveniles – that is to say, the penguins were even cuter than usual.  I desaturated a few of the photos in Lightroom.

The following day we visited the Botanical Gardens before our flight home.
