There is one date in the Cape Town alternative festival calendar that never disappoints, RAMFEST! Yes, this glorious weekend of camping and non-stop boozing in the sun sure keeps on growing and growing. This year, RAMFEST 2013 was held at the Circle of Dreams farm in the middle of nowhere, also called Riviersonderend. The venue had great shaded camping grounds, a river for relaxing on a tube, great food stalls and other bare necessities. The big name international acts that graced the stage were…Bring Me The Horizon, Rise Against, Pendulum’s Verse DJ Set and The Inspector Cluzo. These and some other great local talent ensured that the entertainment standard was kept high all weekend long, requiring more than one day to fully recover from a weekend of vicious ramming by the Cape’s best party animals. Below are some of my favorite band photos from RAMfest 2013, Cape Town. You can find the rest of the album on my Facebook Page (SL Photography) and my personal profile.
In summertime the sunsets are just amazing, glowing reds and oranges, a feast for the eye. Usually these perfect sunsets are few and far between for this little hidden gem of a village on the coast of Southern Africa. This evening was the exception, truly breathtaking. I met my friends Vania and Daniel for a casual photo session at the old harbour where yachts lie drifting in the evening sun. We hang around and chat, waiting for perfect light that will make the evening’s work truly memorable. Those perfect day’s end will surely be missed. Once the winter hits, we are left longing for those long summer nights spent at the water’s edge sipping shallow drinks and shrouding off the worst life can throw at us.
