On The Beach

I was on the beach early this morning and just had to take these images.

Then it all turned in to this soft yellowy gold colour. I always marvel at the quick colour changes of dawn.

About Don

I love life. Sometimes it makes sense, other times not. Discerning its underlying patterns and beauty always provides great reward and meaning and is a passion I ineptly follow. I feel deeply attached to nature and love the sea with its distinct moods and colour and find walking along its beaches wonderfully inspiring. Writing, sketching and photography is a sheer joy for me and the blog is one of the places I am able to express these pursuits.

    Oh it so sucks to be you, doesn’t it !!!! Sorry petty jealousy creeping back in.

    One big huge GRUNT for these picture of monumental splendour -to see this, the South African coastline up close and personal as you did and do, must erase any problems if one were to have any.

    For simplicity, an dynamic effect, a sunrise or surf shot packs greater punch with few traces of man. However, a few items or one person suggest how relatively small people are in comparison to nature. Gives me optimism that nature will win over man.

    PS….and I meant ‘win over man’ to her way of thinking, not beat up on him, which she does a pretty good job so it seems these days.

      It does have that effect on you Hudson, well certainly on me โ€“ it does erase and energize. โ€œโ€ฆtraces of man.โ€ I get what youโ€™re saying. The comparison needs to be there. Thanks for the comment.

    The first photo is picture postcard perfect! I had to look twice to work out whether it was even real. Great going!

  14. Don, these are so beautiful and vibrant!
