The story behind the image
Earlier today I blogged a photo of the southernmost point of the African continent near Cape Agulhas, South Africa.
Now, this photo shows the top of the official landmark – a windrose indicating the distances to different places in the world (e.g., New York 12745 km, Cape Point 147 km). I deliberately opted to put the focus on the center of the windrose (instead of Petra) as I really aimed for the slightly blurred look that increases with the distance.
I think it’s exciting that this photo was taken exactly 18 years ago. Petra has not changed one bit in all that time (and I think the scenery at Cape Agulhas hasn’t changed either.) Lovely.
