Don’t SAY rather DO

In recent days a few friends and I were chatting about going / getting out there and doing / trying instead of just saying “I want to.. I’m thinking of..”.

The weather report last night indicated there would be little to no cloud this morning. Even when I got up at 04:30 all I could see was stars and no cloud.

Surprise! It was one of those magical mornings when the clouds suddenly appeared on Umhlanga Beach as I sat doing a long exposure of The Beverly Hills Hotel.

The clouds turned that lovely pink and the sky was a pretty blue for a while.

After shooting The Pearls Mall apartments I went onto the rocks and shot the sun popping the horizon before turning around to take a snap of my other favourite hotel: The Oyster Box (I really should have a standing invite to visit here or at The Beverly Hills Hotel Umhlanga Rocks after every early morning shoot ūüėČ for freshly ground filter coffee).

It was another shoot involving my Sigma South Africa 10-20 lens, which on the Canon South Africa 550D is the equivalent of 16 mm.

Holding thumbs that the Sigma 12-24 mm arrives soon for me to test on my 6D body. I thinks it’s going to be a cracker!

One thought on “Don’t SAY rather DO”

  1. Great shots, as always!
    Been thinking about Durban, putting it into action to be there later in the year – It does require a bit of planning, possibly checking out a whale or two (Hermanus) along the way ūüôā
