Simonstown South Africa Photos

Every day I go for a walk with my dog Gino. Sometimes we talk a long and easy walk and most times we walk for twenty minutes or less. But I never walk without my very convenient Samsung Galaxy as my camera.

Here are 10 recent Simon’s Town South Africa photos I took. I hope you enjoy them and share then at Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and Pinterest.

Many people walk their dogs on the Simon’s Town golf course early in the morning. These Egyptian Geese family used the pond as protection.

As the sun rise over False Bay these impressive boulders casts interesting shadows on the water. Because I take photos only with my cell phone I cannot capture the penguins sitting on these rocks waiting for the sun to warm them up.

Water’s Edge is one of my favourite beaches in Simon’s Town. It’s very well protected from the masses. And not easily accessible if you are not aware of it.

This beach is and ideal place to take photos of sunrises, penguins and many other animals and birds. Sometimes I get surprised by Clawless Otters.

The photo above is again taken at Water’s Edge beach in Simon’s Town. The palm tree there gives a nice tropical feel to the beach.

My dog Gino running along a footpath below the Golf Cours. Driving along Links road below the Simon’s Town golf course I stop and then walk along the beach seeking opportunities to snap a few photos.

Here’s a bunch of colourful wild flowers with the calm see in the background and the torn bush reminding us of life.

The rain just stopped, the sun was out and a few drops hanged on to this velvet flower.

At Water’s Edge beach in Simonstown these three penguins gave me some time to take photos of them as they waited for the sun to warm their cold and wet bodies.

Higher up in the mountain you’ll come across many great flowers and lovely views over Simon’s Town. This photo was taken from a service road starting a Dorion Close. This is narrow little tar road going to a water reservoir. It’s tough 10 minute walk.

This is a street scene as the sun rises over Simon’s Town. This photo was taken in Runciman road. The trees creates such an nice frame for the sunrise I just had to stop and take it.

That’s it for today. I hope you enjoyed my photos. Please leave a comment and share it with your social circles.

Have fun

P.S. Why not come and stay in a lovely Simon’s Town holiday home and join me on my photo taking trips.
