This is the last image (See what I just did? I called it an image, just for the purists!), from my Cape Town trip.
This image stretches from Green Point on the left to Table Mountain on the right and the City of Cape Town in the middle, clearly seen is the table-cloth running down Table Mountain one of the “new” 7 wonders of nature.
I had everything planned and it showed. Well, not everything, the clouds and the freezing cold wind that made me wish I had a beanie were far from planned.
The point I am trying to make is, planning helps, more so when you have limited time at a location.
When travelling, take your tripod, camera and a couple of lenses and plan what you will be shooting. Check the weather, sunrise and sunset times, how long to get there, where to shoot from, will you need a beanie?
I take my 24mm pancake everywhere, it is often accompanied by the 10-18mm and when I can a 24-105 or equivalent.
