Epic Pretoria Sunset


A few weeks ago @BaasDeBeer and I made our way home from Aandklas in Hatfield to get ready for an evening of awesome tunes with Karen Zoid at the Atterbury Theatre. As we drove over the mountain into the Moot I had the urge to take a photo of the epic Pretoria Sunset that presented itself as we turned into Soutpansberg Road.

Seeing this photo now I’m thinking that Pretoria doesn’t have New York City’s skyscrapers or London’s underground, but that this city probably has some of the most beautiful sunsets in the world. I really love Pretoria and I don’t that I’ll be moving away from here very soon. Like Bittereinder says in ‘The Tale of Three Cities’: “Kerkorrel se Snor City, Pretoria in my hart” (and yes I know that it’s actually Bernoldus Niemand who coined that phrase and yes the band have apologized for that).

This is the photo that I took of the Epic Pretoria Sunset that @BaasDeBeer spotted as we were driving home. It has been selected as today’s Daily Cool Photo onĀ Running Wolf’s Rant.

Pretoria is pretty, right? Leave a comment and let me know what you think. Feedback is appreciated and welcome here.
