Far, Far Away From Home

South Africa Cape of good hopeThe Cape of Good Hope, I think this is a place that sailors both love and hate. They hate it because its so far away and such a dramatic place on the journey round Africa but the feeling that comes with passing the tip and knowing they’ve don that part of the journey must be overwhelming.

The image is from 2008 when I got the opportunity to go to South Africa for one week. It’s a lovely country with exceptional sceneray and incredible wine and food. I wanted to show the cape but at the same time give the viewer a hint as to how far away it is… So I took a photo of the sign that is placed at the lighthouse just behind me and did some soft photoshop work and ended up with this one of a kind.
