Breaking Waves and Ships
Here’s another take on the Breaking Waves post. This time the breaking waves and ships, which are visible on the horizon.
Umhlanga is close enough to Durban so that there is often shipping on the horizon waiting to enter Durban Harbour Nothing like just sitting on a beach watching the waves break, watching the ships on the horizon. Where have the ships been? Where are they going?
They don’t look big, but the force of waves and the backwash are strong.
Umhlanga, kwaZulu-Natal, South Africa
Cropping a photo is an old photography technique, just made simpler by digital photography. On the other side of the coin, which crop do we want to display. i couldn’t decide, so I posted both.

Island Life – Love to be there now
A sample of island life in the Bazaruto Archipelago, on Magaruque Island to be exact. I just added this picture to the collection, though I don’t know how it was missed in the first place.
This blog seems to have become dominated by pictures from our Christmas Mozambique jaunt. It’s been a hectic year, with little time for photography, though there are still a few to be edited from Nerja and local events. The Vilanculos area of Mozambique is just so photogenic, and it was a superb holiday. I am still editing some of the selection of photos taken.
Enjoy this one, taken just as we arrived, having travelled across from Archipelago Resort in the rain!
At Vilanculos, looking over the sea at low tide. The low tide lightens the colour of the sea, showing dry sand in many places. The deep channels remain a deep turquoise / blue colour. Sometimes it looks as if you could walk to the islands.
Many photographers looking at this shot will immediately think “polariser”. That’s what I as soon as I saw the picture. A dig in my camera bag unearthed the Cokin mounts. But no filters! The filters were back in the UK, after I did a last minute camera bag change! It just shows – check your kit, and check it again!
Here’s a similar picture with a sail.

This beach seems to go on forever with the sea on the horizon under a clear blue sky. The receeding tide on Bazaruto island has left a pool of water. Warmed by the Mozambique sun it is like a warm bath.
A beach on Bazaruto Island where we stopped for a while on the way to 2 Mile Reef. The receding tide left a big pool of water, but the beach seems to go on forever.
