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.

Photography Notes

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.

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.
