Rearview sunset

A week or two ago I had to go on an urgent work-related road trip and popped into two of my favorite villages, Nieu-Bethesda and Hogsback, before heading down to East London for the night. It was literally whistle-stop visits with no sightseeing. All business. Barrelling along the N2 between King William’s Town and East London the sun was setting behind me and the best I could do was snap a pic in the car’s side mirror at a hundred and mumble mumble kilometers an hour.

Sunset is getting earlier

Heading home after work this afternoon I just realised again how quickly winter is approaching.  Other than the chill in the air the biggest indicator is the sun.  In summer it goes down after 7:30pm but this time of year it heads to the horizon not long after five.  So this afternoon I got to snap a pic with my new phone that I’ve wanted to take for years now.  The sun behind the Fig Tree on the corner of Main Road Walmer and William Moffet just as the light turned green and the guy next to me moved enough not to block the tree.
