Gap Rise

“In truth, to attain to interior peace, one must be willing to pass through the contrary to peace. Such is the teaching of the Sages.” – Swami Brahmanada

It was “just another sunrise at 2nd Beach Port St Johns“. A few late night party chaps stopped for a while in their car to shoot selfies, two crayfish salesmen walked past, the receding tide crashed medium waves into the rocks where I was and at The Gap; otherwise the beach was empty and still. Nearby, across the road behind me, Amapondo Backpackers / Amapondo IBackpackers was still asleep.

Mind The Gap

I was lucky enough to have some time after work late afternoon on Mon the 22nd of September to have a grand filter coffee at Amapondo Backpackers and then head onto 2nd Beach at Port St Johns (Transkei – South Africa) with my camera. I was not that lucky as the wind was howling, gusting 30 km/h perhaps, and blowing onto the lens. So it was hold onto your tripod and wipe your filter all the time stuff. At least I managed to get a photo of The Gap. The photo turned out fairly sharp with minimal spots to spot heal. I promised the barman some photos; a few more will follow. BTW: it was not as bright and colourful that afternoon as the photo shows 🙂
