as the background to the iconic cricket match ground at Newlands.

Table Mountain's mood today - still 'enjoying' heat wave conditions of temperatures of 30 plus degrees Celsius.
One could see the haziness caused by the heat.

Welcome back Kaapsedraai! :D

Great photo which sure does show how HOT it was :wall: ...not pleasant weather at all. :whistle:
Some cooler weather will be most welcome after the heat of the past couple of days. :hmz:

umtali1, :thumbs_up: and I really do not know how the cricket players manage to cope in this heat :roll:

Trrp-trrrrrrrr, thank you. :D Slowly getting back into the rhythm of things. Yes, this heat wave is really tiring us all out now, but while we getting a quick cold front it seems the north in for some more hot weather :wall:

Meandering Mouse, so glad TM back in its place after following me around :lol: I & I had done an excellent job. :thumbs_up:

Cape of Storms, I can imagine, hence hope this threat will help a bit. :D

Wednesday, 06 January 2016 - Table Mountain getting ready for a quick shower...we hope :D
A cold front predicted as clouds appearing from the west, but heavier clouds with drizzle only expected late this afternoon (or from now on).
The humidity still very high and still very hot around, but slight breeze helping a bit. :D

I wouldn't mind this time around if you send some of your cold front to us Kaapsedraai! Only not during winter time! :tongue:

I saw that front creeping in while watching the cricket. I am sure that the English were also happy. :wink:

Lovely :cam:

Friday, 08 January 2016 - Table Mountain cooling off a bit while breeze blowing :D
Yesterday and the nights before the wind was blowing quite strong, bringing some must needed cooler temperatures...ahhhh.
Today, wind still blowing with Table Mountain covered just slightly with its proverbial cloth.
