Twelve Apostles from Table Mountain

Twelve Apostles from Table Mountain

It is a beautiful scene, isn't it? The photo can't fully describe how phenomenally spectacular a sunset from the top of Table Mountain is. The cableway is still running a special where you can buy a return ticket after 18h00 for only 72.50 ZAR. A price like that for a view like this? It's a no-brainer.

I have to be honest and confess that this photo is a little out of date. We're in the process of preparing version 2 of Cape Town Daily Photo, so there really hasn't been much time to get out and take photos. I shot this one a month ago when we went up Table Mountain with our visiting family from Sydney. :)

    Hi Usha – yes, sorry, perhaps I should have explained that. :) We’re so use to “The Twelve Apostles” that I never considered how confusing it may sound to people who don’t know what they are.

    The Twelve Apostles is a range of mountains that extend from table mountain in the direction of Hout Bay. They’re called such because the mountain range has twelve peaks which are easily distinguishable. In the photo above you can see the Apostles stretching out towards the setting sun. Take a look at this photo that we posted a year or more ago, it’s taken from a different angle to the one in this post:

    I hope this now makes more sense. :)
