Black Southeaster

B is for Black Southeaster blowing. Cape Town's infamous Southeaster wind sometimes causes a black cloud to build up behind Table Mountain, known locally as a Black Southeaster. The Southeaster normally blows in summer, but it is hard to believe that this chilly wind has anything to do with summer! Just over Constantia Neck, the sun is shining in Hout Bay, but here in Plumstead, under the cloud it is rather black, bleak and decidedly blustery.

  2. How beautifully terrifying Mother Nature can be, yes? One side sunny and warm the other dark and threatening. Ty for a great picture :)
