Nature, the best medicine!

I took this landscape and scene at Houtbay outside CapeTown. Yes, I know there are lots of man made lights and goodies around, but it is all enveloped by nature.

I have been working extremely long hours lately, going without a nights sleep on a couple occasions. When I feel that I really cannot go any further, I try to visit and photograph sites and scenes like this one.

Mother nature in all her aspects is really the most beautiful and rewarding experience on this planet. It is just very sad that we abuse her the way we do. I love this image and hope that you like it to. An hour here was about as good as 1 nights sleep
