Cape of Storms by hougaard Cape of Storms by hougaard
The dark rain clouds of a cold front rolls over Table Bay, pouring rain onto Cape Town and Table Mountain. Probably the last proper cold front we'll have. The days are getting pleasantly bearable again, thought it's always merely a phase before the heat arrives. Which I absolutely hate.

Playing around a bit with color.

Ah, I see it has a hint of colour. I'm seeing this at work on 8 year old uncalibrated monitors...so it's tricky to pick out here...I'll check it again when I get home tonight
