Hello again Johan, Your sunsets really are amazing! Are you origanally from South Africa, only I thought the name Johan was dutch! (I only know that because when I was a very young girl in my teens I had a boyfriend named Johan and he was from Holland)! Samantha

H.J. van Zyl on July 24, 2008

I am flattered by your nice comments SAMANTHA, but I must say that this evening the sunset over Table Mountain was sublime! (View from my balcony at home) Yes, Johan is Dutch and for seven generations already we are in South Africa, but I made a study of my geneaology and we (originally) came from Delft in Holland. Regards! Johan

Alicia gave you a gold star, and you are awarded one from me also, Johann. The other images of sunsets with Table Mtn are also very good, but I noticed that most comments do not refer to the mountain. But one cannot miss it here, for it is the play of the mountain with the clouds, and the sunset on the clouds that make this a memorable image.

I appreciate your generous praise IAN and also the yellow star! I also noticed the lack of mention about the mountain. I can only think that the reason is perhaps that most people do not know Cape Town and it's famous Table Mountain! Thank you though, for making it special! Kind Wishes! Johan.
