Skywatch Friday :

Yesterday .... a hot, cloudless and hazy day in Cape Town .... from the top of Signal Hill ...

.... looking down across Table Bay to Robben Island ... seemed appropriate for yesterday as it was the 20th anniversary of the 'walk to freedom' of Nelson Mandela who had been imprisoned on Robben Island for many years ....

The foreground puts it into perspective with the new Greenpoint Soccer Stadium built for the 2010 world soccer which is taking place in all the major cities in South Africa ...


.... and looking back from where I was standing to take the photo above .... how could I not include Table Mountain embracing the part of the City of Cape Town ...
