  1. While in Africa we took a helicopter from Cape Town down to the Cape of Good Hope.

    The Cape of Good Hope is the point in the foreground, the other point is called Cape Point. It is the dividing line between the Atlantic and Indian Oceans- D-100 18-70 @18mm:

    Here Cape Point is in the foreground and the Cape of Good Hope is to the left - D-100 18-70 @31mm

    Circling past the top of Cape Point on the way to land. There are many lookout point there - D-100 18-70 @62mm

    After landing, we rode the tram up to the top - D-70 28-200 @ 35mm

    Looking down the cliffs of Cape Point - D-70 28-200 @28mm:

    These are great!

    Post-process the rotor out of photo number one; and it will be perfect.
  4. Hi Ken,

    I guess I never thought to do that, thanks for the suggestion. I gave it a try and it looks like this, which I do like better:

    Also since I was in Photoshop, I took another photo from that flight and cropped it about 6 to 1. While flying over the Cape of Good Hope, we saw two Southern Right Whales swiming along below us. Not great, but very interesting:

    Thanks again,
