Cape Town Harbour

Here is an image, of Cape Town harbour, looking towards the old Customs House and the red Clock Tower and the open sea beyond, that gives me pleasure. The composition is simple, conventional, but to my eye satisfying in its calm regularity. But it is the light that excites – the cloudiness in the sky, the lyrical reflections, remind me of a watercolour, while the quay and the yacht and the buildings across the water have the precision of a photograph.

To my eye, anyway – you may see it differently!
