Above us, only sky…

…well, that and Canadian astronaut Chris Hadfield, who continues to provide us with amazing photos of the earth, taken from the International Space Station and shared via twitter.

Yesterday, he gave us this gem of a a rather barren looking Western Cape, with a bit of Northern Cape at the top right and a bit of Eastern Cape at the bottom. (Because this image is “sideways”, South is left here.)

Looks like a lovely day in the Mother City (as it was), but Cape Agulhas is hidden under that little blanket of white cloud. Still, hardly get the red wine in and light the fire kind of weather, although you’re always more than welcome to do that if you want to.
