It seems the Mother City’s skies have certainly not given up on showing off amid lockdown, as residents across the City shared breathtaking pictures of both the sunrise and sunset in Cape Town recently.

From Camps Bay to Simon’s Town, locals were stunned by the unbelievable fiery show that took place at the beginning of yesterday morning and then again as the evening was ushered in on the same day.

Cape Town’s skies filled with bright orange and yellow tones that framed popular landmarks from Lion’s Head to Table Mountain.

As we continue to spend our time staying safe indoors, it is comforting to know that the beauty of Cape Town is still there to greet us every morning and each night.

Take a look at some of the best pictures taken of the recent sunrise and sunset:
