Dolphin’s Rise

“Mother Nature is always speaking. She speaks in a language understood within the peaceful mind of the sincere observer. Leopards, cobras, monkeys, rivers and trees; they all served as my teachers when I lived as a wanderer in the Himalayan foothills” ~ Radhanath Swami

Yesterday I trundled along the North Coast of KZN for a sunrise shoot.

“Just north of Durban is a place with 2 names: Dolphin Coast and Sugar Coast. The waters are home to bottlenose dolphins and the land is rich and fertile with sugar plantations everywhere. Dolphin Coast is not part of the mainstream tourist route because it not visible from the main highway. However, if one passes further down the coastal roads past the popular resorts and beaches, it would be impossible to miss the delightful sights of the dolphins, pristine beaches, and rolling hills of the Sugar Coast” ~

Yet another wonderful encounter with Mother Nature; alone on the beach for at least an hour before someone else appeared. The ideal tonic (watching the sun rise and taking photos) for some who are struggling to find beauty & gratitude in this life. An added bonus to then get home and work on the same photos and again stare in awe at the same wonderful scene.
