I took this photograph of a rather verdant scene featuring Wynberg Hill, Newlands Forest and Table Mountain on the 21st October 2017 at 10:21:49.
Because of the precise GPS settings on the Mavic Pro, I know exactly where I took it from as well. Technology, ne?
My plan is to take another photo (or maybe more than one) on other 21sts (or as close as weather, work and will allows) with a view to comparing just how dry and yellow/brown Cape Town gets over summer with absolutely no water to spare for the plants.
This image was taken in a week when the dam levels rose by 1.1% (to 38.5%) after some decent rain, so it marks a good time to get a green benchmark and also, in many people’s minds, the likely the last increase of the year.
Look out for part two at some other stage.
