Thompson’s Bay is on the KZN North Coast about 45 min from Durban. Access to the beach is via a walkway from Ocean Drive (north of Ballito). Although it is a beautiful location, I have not succeeded in three consecutive photo shoots to come away with any photo I really like. Henry and I went there early on 21 September 2014, one hour before the 05:48 sunrise. The previous two occasions the sea mist blurred things up and on this occasion there were no clouds to spice the sky up and make it interesting. Nevertheless, it was still an awesome opportunity to be at one with nature on a desolate beach before it got busy. Read more about Ballito here.
