The new Reuben’s Restaurant is situated just off the main street in Franschhoek, 2 Daniel Hugo Rd and much of what guests have come to love about the Reuben’s experience remain, but it’s presented in new, fresh and personal packaging, with Reuben and Maryke’s personalities and tastes evident throughout. “The gap between maintaining the heart and soul of the Reuben’s experience, which our guests have come to know and trust over the years, and all of the potential and excitement of something new and completely ours, is where our creativity can really be let loose and flourish,” says Reuben Riffel. “It’s time for a new look and for pushing ourselves to constantly offer our customers a better experience, and we’re bursting with positive energy for everything to come!”

This year, the full moons of October, November and December all take place when the moon is at its closest point of approach in its orbit around Earth — a so-called supermoon.
This full moon will be not only the closest and brightest supermoon of 2016 but also the largest since 1948.

Lot of fun lot of wine what else? The Chocolate Block
The quest to understand the name of this wine and the wine itself is now the stuff of legend – it’s even launched a graphic novel (see here). While we are not about to reveal all, we can say that the style of the wine is a reflection of our belief that the Cape, with its Mediterranean climate, is eminently suited to blended reds. The make-up of this wine is tweaked from vintage to vintage to best reflect the season and the ancient vines of great character that are an integral part of the wine’s charm and personality.

Surfing at Muizenberg is a beach-side suburb of Cape Town, South Africa. It is situated where the shore of the Cape Peninsula curves round to the east on the False Bay coast. It is considered to be the birthplace of surfing in South Africa and is currently home to a surfing community, centered on the popular ‘Surfer’s Corner’. Muizenberg has a fine, long beach that in effect stretches all the way round the top of False Bay to the Strand, a distance of over 20 km. False Bay, known for its population of White Sharks, also has a shark watch service that operates from Muizenberg, signalling alerts when sharks come in proximity of bathers and surfers. Above Muizenberg there is a line of steep cliffs that is very popular as a venue for rock climbing. However, certain parts of the cliff are off-limits to climbers when birds nest on the ledges.

Olympus Pen F
A timeless design. An extraordinary textured body. From the very first moment you touch the OLYMPUS PEN-F this camera will create a feeling of something special that will stay with you forever. The pure expression of OLYMPUS design that will inspire you for a lifetime.
Using multi shot technology the camera can produce 50 megapixel equivalent images in JPEG and an 80mp RAW file. This obviously is best for static scenes and performance while on a tripod but is does allow for superb detailed images when needed. This is especially suited for interiors and product type of photography.
Just a turn of the dial to Mono allows you to capture monochromatic images. This mono mode has the ability to adjust the image based on color filters and degrees of intensity. Under the Mode selector knob on top of the camera is a lever control and by pushing left or right on it you bring up different options on the rear LCD screen. You can for example select simulated Red filter and then vary the degree of intensity of the filter. When shooting blue skies it’s just like applying colored filters in the traditional B&W days.
