Table Mountain’s Cloudy Tablecloth


I haven’t been in Cape Town since February of this year. It’s quite sad if you ask me. I miss the fresh air, the vibe at the Shack and various other things, but the one thing I miss the most is Table Mountain. All you Cape Townians are probably saying “Ja, it’s because you’re a Vaalie” and you’re probably right. It’s definitely one of most stunning natural landmarks  in South Africa and the world in my opinion, okay? It’s not the highest mountain in the world, but it’s surely one of the most spectacular ones. And I definitely don’t get to see it enough.

Laura Grier (an International Wedding Photographer, artist and lover of travel, capturing colour and life based in Los Angeles in the United States) snapped this photo of Table Mountain’s Cloudy Tablecloth. According to her, this gorgeous phenomena of clouds pouring over the top of the mountain is what gave the mountain it’s name. She was mesmerized by this stunning, slow motion, waterfall effect and she just had to capture it with her camera. She still thinks that its impossible to ever truly capture. Her photo was entered into the National Geographic Traveler Photo Contest recently. You can follow her on Twitter via @beautidayphoto or visit her website at It’s a truly stunning shot of Cape Town’s oldest friend if you ask me. This photo has been selected as the Daily Cool Photo on Running Wolf’s Rant for the 11th of July 2012.
