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.
