Sunset over Hobie Beach

Local is lekker

Judy de Vega used to be The Herald's chief librarian - now she has joined the photographic staff and, as you can see from this shot, is a painter with a camera. Judy took this photograph last Thursday in Port Elizabeth, as the sun went down over the harbour. She was shooting from Shark Rock Pier, looking north west. Just look at those gorgeous clouds ... Monet couldn't have captured it better and I bet it makes the ex-pats out there homesick.
Now compare that to the wild waves at Shark Rock less than a month ago, on Monday, September 1 http://www.theherald.co.za/Giantwaveswreakhavoc/index.html Judy's colleague, award-winning photographer Fredlin Adriaan, took the one used here. Port Elizabeth truly is a city of contrasts ...
