Knysna is located in the Western Cape Province of South Africa. A hamlet, Melville, appeared on the lakeshore in 1825, and was followed by another, Newhaven, in 1846. Knysna town, a 1882 amalgamation of these hamlets, was named after the Knysna River. The town is primarily built on the northern shore of a large warm-water estuary, fed by the Knysna River. The estuary opens to the ocean after passing between two large headlands. These are popularly known as “The Heads”, and have become infamous due to the loss of boats and fishermen passing through their treacherous and unpredictable waters. I’ve never been to Knysna, but its definitely in an area of South Africa that I wish to explore. This photo of a sunset over the ocean at Knysna has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 26th of July 2011.
