Pictures snapped by ACi'ans.

Recommended Posts

Hi guys, from long time i was planning to create this thread, but somehow it was postponed but finally i am creating one. Well here i am talking about the pictures snapped by we members of anything other than Automobiles like Nature, Landscapes, Monuments, Pics from your past trips or anything you find interesting but please post only if they are snapped by you and not from internet websites. I just love the 'Blues & Greens' of nature like mountains, water, sky, etc and thus i am posting some pics snapped by me. The following pics are from South Africa when i visited the beautiful country in November 2008. Most of the pics are of Capetown and i just loved the city for its nature, the Blue water, Green mountains and cleanliness was just awesome. From the cities i have visited so far, i found Capetown best.

Well when we went there i.e in November mid in the year 2008, the weather was moderate, sometimes it was rainy while sometimes it cool or even chill but that was in Capetown and Garden Route(Knysna, oudtshoorn) but in Suncity and Johannesburg it was hot and AC was needed. As thats completely different area than Capetown, that part is more modern and less natural.

You will love Capetown, but overall South Africa is more like Australia(your profile says you live in perth), but its more beautiful and natural.

Dont miss the wild life safari and prefer Mabula Game Lodge, i was there for Game drives for 3nights and it was very good also its owned by liquor baron Dr. Vijay Mallya, when i came to know that(on the last day that is) i was even more excited.

For any more info, feel free to ask me, can get in more detail.
