Good Morning Durban!

img_4923-edit-edit-copy-large

We had a comedy of errors / mishaps this morning (Sun 15 Jan 2017) one hour before sunrise.

Shane Newman was missing a section of tripod so I said use mine. As Shane used mine the head broke!

We used Shane’s T-shirt and cap to rest our cameras on rocks and managed to get some shots although mine (attached) is a little fuzzy on the left side.

Neil Hellerle did fine I think as he had taped his tripod together

It looks like two of us are going tripod shopping soon

Umhlanga on the Rise

“Rest is not idleness, and to lie sometimes on the grass on a summer day listening to the murmur of water, or watching the clouds float across the sky, is hardly a waste of time.” – Sir J. Lubbock

It’s guaranteed to be an awesome sunrise tomorrow morning (24 June 2016) at the beach. Probably not the clouds photographers would like, but crisp air and sun.

This photo was taken on Umhlanga Beach about 100 m south of Umhlanga Pier in front of The Beverly Hills Hotel on 16 June 2016 using a Canon South Africa G3X Powershot. 1/4 sec. F11. ISO 125. Small Joby GorillaPod.

Good morning Durban and Happy Father’s Day! (Sunday 19 June 2016).

Wishing all of you a splendid day with your fathers, children, partners, friends, or even one enjoying your own company.

We went looking for Vusumuzi, a lifeguard at Durban North Beach., but he was not there… no doubt already busy with the Standard Bank Ironman 70.3 Durban – good man!

Are sporty cars like humans? Do they have feelings, long for love & beautiful sunrises?

In my youth we would often fish on this river (Umgeni River Mouth / Blue Lagoon Durban). We named our locations by the bridges’ numerical order from the sea heading inland – this is 1st bridge just before the mouth.
