About last night…Patience is always rewarded. In a matter of moments the sky turned from blue and grey and then burst into flames! This is the first time in 4 yrs that I have driven to the viewpoint to witness the spectacle of a sunset and was definitely not disappointed! Here are a couple more pics from the drama unfolding…🔥🌄💕🇿🇦 • • • #houtbay #sunsets #houtandabout #capetown #southafricanskies #houtbaytourism #houtbay #capetownskies #sunsetsky #cloudporn #lovewesterncape #capetowninfo #exploresouthafrica #lovecapetown #instatravel #travel #sunsets #capetownisawesome #capetowntourism #ig_capetown #capetownguide #meetsouthafrica #visitcapetown #capetownliving #wowsouthafrica #capetowntourism #discoverctwc #travelmassivect #southafrica
