Cape of Storms

Welcome to my site and welcome to a small part of my world.

Browse by clicking on the various month’s archives folder to the right and then clicking previous/next entries as per bottom left below.

An unexpected storm pulled through last night accompanied by spectacular lightning and thunder.

Bit too hectic to venture outside to get a nice slow exposure of the lightning like the last storm as this pic below and my three year old boy woke up scared as kids do so kept him company as warmer than being outside in the cold gale.


Waking up the next morning we were treated to the sight of a very wild Indian Ocean.

I headed down to Kalk Bay harbour for lunch and snapped a few shots of the waves braking over the harbour wall. The Harbour House restaurant is perfectly positioned to view the waves breaking over the harbour as well as protect you from the spray although you have to choose your position very carefully as to not get smashed by a rogue wave. I found three great spots and all of them allowed me to get some good angles without getting too wet. Others were not so lucky. 😉

So next time a storm pulls through and you’re in the Cape Peninsula area take a drive to Kalk Bay harbour as there’s bound to be some action.

Look forward to hearing from you.

    Hi Ralph,

    I handle the PR for Harbour House and Daniel has mentioned your fantastic photography! I would love to add these to Twitter – do you have a Twitter share option? If not I could just copy the link.

    Let me know what you would prefer.

    Warm regards,
