I made this photo this morning on Rocket Road, below Karbonkelberg in Hout Bay, South Africa.

Winter seems more like spring. A bit of rain and nature starts its work on plants and flowers.

Here is what Wikipedia has to say about the area:

Karbonkelberg is a small peak forming part of the Table Mountain National Park in Cape Town, South Africa. It forms a prominent landmark overlooking the harbour at Hout Bay. An unusual feature is that sand has been blown up it by the wind, causing a dune-like feature. This has been popular with local residents to surf down it on polished boards or sheets.

In the North it is bordered by Table Mountain National Park comprising of the Orangekloof Nature reserve and the lower slopes of Table Mountain beyond.

It is bordered by the Atlantic and the Little Lions Heads (Klein Leeukop), Kapteins Peak and the Sentinel mountains.

The peak is popular for short treks and is also used by the occasional adventurous mountainbiker.
