New 7 Wonders of the World

Table Mountain, one of the 7 Wonders of the World?

Pardon me for today using this old photo from my helicopter trip on 8 July. Based on the title of this post perhaps the reason is fairly obvious to you though. Or, perhaps you haven't heard that Table Mountain is one of the finalists in the New 7 Wonders of the World campaign?

Please take some time to click through to the official website where you can cast your vote for what you consider to be the 7 top wonders of the world. (Hopefully Table Mountain will be one of them, but if for some reason you're not convinced by this photo, take a look at a few of the reasons at or get a better perspective by taking a look at these two photos taken from the summit. :) )

Head over to the New7Wonders website, click on the photos, add the 7 that you consider most deserving to your list, and follow the step-by-step instructions. Simple!

In closing, first do the voting thing; but when you're done, if you're interested in seeing a few of the photos from my exciting helicopter trip, click through to the photo album that I put together for the ship's crew.

    Table Mountain looks so good mostly with its Table Cloth, when there its sunshine in the city centre and mist up on the mountain love rotating heading up to the top of the mountain, it is an amazing view from there, where you can actually see all the towns all over Cape Town…its experience not to be missed..whenever one visits South Africa.

    This a wonderful shot! Most unusual view of the waterfront – that breakwater is pretty impressive. The mountain looks lovely and you’ve captured the crisp yet soft winter light perfectly. I hope you’ve been noticing the beautiful skies we’ve been having lately :)

    Agrinnette & Helen, somehow I missed your comments!

    Agrinnette – I’m really glad that you enjoyed visiting Cape Town so much. Did you manage to visit during the World Cup?

    Helen – thanks for that. See this photo that I just found. It’s taken from a similar angle, but years ago, before the V&A Waterfront was built.
