Part 7: Two Oceans Aquarium and the Waterfront

During one of our rainy days in Camps Bay we decided to give the Two Oceans Aquarium a go. Its a really great place to visit and got some really interesting exhibits. The Giant Spider Crabs are definitely a sight!

I kind of wish I had a macro lens with me, but the 50mm 1.8D did the job acceptably. I tried a few with the 24-85mm but found in that kind of light, the image quality just wasn’t good enough. Something like the Nikon 105mm f2.8 VR would have been very useful I imagine.

The following pics were taken around the V&A waterfront during our stay. Had many a pleasant afternoon white sangria at Ferrymans.
