Footsteps in the Sand at Blue Bayou beach, Valras Plage

Footsteps in the Sand after Sunrise

Late May in the Lanquedoc-Rousillon area of France can be windy and cold. But the sun shines. The sunsets and sunrises are great, well worth the early start. On this morning I caught a decent sunrise. On my way back to camp I noticed the effect of the golden hour light at a low angle on my footsteps on the beach. This was taken during our May visit to the area – see Big Blue Sky over Valras Plage.

Morning on an empty beach at Umhlangs Rocks

Morning on an Empty Beach

Morning walk on am empty beach, with Durban on the horizon.

A morning walk on a beautiful beach at Umhlanga Rocks, kwaZuluNatal, South Africa.

It could almost be a desert island. Look closely at the horizon – that’s Durban, with a ship leaving harbour. Nice illusion, but still great to walk along the beach in the morning, all alone, with just the sound of the sea.
