Striated Skies No 21 – Hanging Baskets

Striated Skies

 

Whilst climbing up Table Mountain on the India Venster Route I took the photo for Striated Skies No. 21. The cableway to the top of the mountain is over 85 years old and was most recently upgraded in 1997 when the round cars with revolving floors were introduced.

Table mountain is one of the new seven wonders of nature and the cableway takes approximately 800 000 people up to the top of the mountain annually. The mountain does have an aura about it and the two baskets that ferry visitors to and fro are a part of it. Whilst the cable car is convenient I would suggest getting fit and climbing the mountain. At the present moment the India Venster route is my favourite
