This photograph was taken at 7.05pm just after sunset.
I’m standing on the edge of the eastern bank of the Bot River Estuary. It’s warm and breathless and the fish are jumping in the shallows. Apart from the faint roar of the sea in my ears and the tinkle of water lapping at my feet, it’s absolutely silent. It’s beautiful.
At left, on the horizon, lies the mouth of the estuary about two kilometres (1.25 miles) away.
Across the water, in the distance on the right, on the far side you can see the dark shape of the Kogelberg mountain range.
