Downhill bike

Tucking in behind the bars, keeping your knees pointed forward and your elbows close to your waist is the best way of attaining the most speed on your downhill cycle. One of the things I like about this pic is the vague line the tyres make on the wet tar just behind the bike as it flies down the steep downhill of Suikerbossie going into Hout Bay.

Rushing water

When there is a lot of rainfall you get lots of waterfalls, one of the advantages of living at the base of a mountain. One wintery morning I went for a walk up the side of Table Mountain and found these. I used a slow shutter to capture that flowing water feel, not an easy feat because the surrounding trees and grass was blowing in the wind.
