Lamberts Bay - A great Ride destination - Some PHOTOS
« on: February 08, 2012, 11:22:39 am »
Hiya Guys and Gals

Took my Wifey for our 22nd wedding anniversary to Lamberts Bay for a Dirty weekend.

Its a great ride up with loads of gravel. The Hotel is R 300 pp with a HUGE Breakfast

Dinner is on the Quay side of the Harbour at Issabellas....with a Huge Double protion of Calamari or Fish costing R 60.

As some of you know Im getting into my photography , so here are a few of my Shots

Allas I did not take the bike or it  would have been in almost every photo

Thoughts and Crit welcome.







The Gannets are 500 meters walk from the Harbour





Giving me the evil EYE





Looking across to the ISLAND










It all lights up at Night

So where is the bike?
Running is hard. It always has been. Woolly mammoths didnít just roll over onto a plate and serve themselves up to prehistoric man with fries and a shake. They had to be caught - and running down woolly mammoths was hard.

Thanks again Guys

Yes Kobus you are correct , I have tried some HDR on those photos.

Just outside Clanwilliam we came across a Hanger just visable from the road with this L39 Albetros

By some luck I managed to get us in for a Chat and a few Photos



In the Hanger they had 3 Beauties



As you can imagine i was rather happy camper



A Couple more of these amazing Birds and their babies



How they Find a Nest amounst 10 000 I do not know....



Necking and kissing all day long

Hi Kobus

I agree with you about the HDR

I am sure they will enjoy it , there is lots more 2 do and explore.

Beaches are a plenty with clean white sand and Christal clear water.

Whats also lekker is LB is always about 10 degrees cooler than Clanwilliam etc

Just do it
