Photographer Shaen Adey spent many hours on location (sometimes before sunrise) to capture Cape Town as never seen before
If like me, you’ve ever lived in Cape Town, the city and its people will have left an indelible print on your heart – and the love affair will never be completely over.
Now you can treasure the memories of your years – or holidays – in Cape Town with this beautiful coffee table book full of beaches and mountains that will make you fall in love with the Mother City all over again (and if you’re lucky enough to live in the shade of the mountain you might wonder why you take it all for granted when you take a look at these pics!)
See the Mother City in all her beauty – from above and ground level
Each page features a normal view as well as a bird’s-eye view of each of Cape Town’s most iconic sites and attractions, with an extended caption for each attraction.
Shaen Adey spent many hours on location (sometimes before sunrise) to capture Cape Town as never seen before. Gale-force winds, smoky skies and devastating fires have been great challenges to her, but the result is a stunning pictorial book filled with amazing elevated views of Cape Town.
