Judges Comment

A feeling of being on holidays somewhere on a hot island, this is the impression which we get looking at this capture. The angle how this flowers were photographed is one of the highlights in this image.

Photographers Comment

This shot was captured November 2016 on the return hike from Lion's Head in Cape Town, South Africa. The path spirals around the peak offering panoramic views of the city, Table Mountain, and Camps Bay Beach seen here. I did not succeed to capture a winning Protea photo during my trip, but this Lion's Tail was a good consolation prize. I shoot with a Canon PowerShot G7X, a fancy point-and-shoot.
