    National Geographic Traveler Magazine: 2012 Photo Contest. Category: Outdoor Scenes. "Table Mountain’s Cloudy Tablecloth: This gorgeous phenomena of clouds pouring over the top of Table Mountain in Cape Town, South Africa, is what gave the mountain it's name. I was mesmerized by this stunning, slow motion, waterfall effect and had to capture it with my camera...which I think is impossible to ever truly capture."

It’s entirely conceivable that life’s splendor surrounds us all, and always in its complete fullness, accessible but veiled, beneath the surface, invisible, far away. But there it lies, not hostile, not reluctant, not deaf. If we call it by the right word, by the right name, then it comes. This is the essence of magic, which doesn’t create but calls. Franz Kafka, from his diaries, cited in Roberto Calasso’s K, translated by Geoffrey Brock.
