With the spray of mist catching in the warm spring South African air from the waves breaking against the rocks, the Cape of Good Hope is the physical form of serenity. The rocky headland on the Atlantic coast of the Cape Peninsula, South Africa, was particularly invigorating that afternoon, and we were lucky enough to catch a couple of indigenous visitors during our shoot.
Having been settled by the Dutch to use as a stopping point for trading ships, the Cape of Good Hope was first sighted by Portuguese navigator Bartolomeu Dias in 1488. While sailing the high seas, Dias discovered that India could be reached by sea from Europe. Because this discovery was such good fortune, the UNESCO World Heritage Site received its name. Now a scenic backdrop to the pulsing city of Cape Town, the Cape of Good Hope is even more beautiful than the picture.
