Stilbaai at night

Posted by
Ansie (Paarl, South Africa) on 12 March 2010 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

This bent tree is in front of our house in a seaside resort on the east coast of South Africa. The house looks out on the mouth of the river, and is one of my favorite places on earth. Beautiful, safe beaches stretch for kilometers, we pick up shells, play games in the evenings and go for long walks.

Stunning night image. I sense the vast openess beyond the lights of the homes. The moonlight created nice reflective light on the water, and beautiful silhouette for the tree and wood structure.
