Hi Gena...thanks for stoppin' by! My SX20...since I've only had it since Christmas, I'm still learning...and probably will be for a very long time! But, so far I'm really pleased with it and am working on trying out all of the settings it offers. The past week it's been rainy and dreary with not a lot to shoot at. Since it doesn't seem to be letting up, I guess I'll go shoot rain drops!

Love this beach photo. It's cool yet warm at the same time.

In referene to Hilda's comment above - yes it is a rather large dirftwood - reason being that about 6 months prior there was a massive coastal storrm which wiped out vast parts of beach, trees, vegetation, homes etc. and for along time afterwards bits and pieces of debris and trees kept comnig ashore... hence it's size.

And yes, Indrani - I wonder how far and long it has travelled until it arrived on this beach and I got to photograph it!?

thanks everyone for your comments and for visiting - much appreciated!!

What a beauty!
During a work assignment in KwaZulu-Natal years ago, our local colleagues drove us miles and miles out of Hluhluwe to a stunning secluded off-the-beaten-track beach where we camped, caught amazing fish and saw turtles swimming in the Ocean. We were the only ones there... no hotels, no restaurants, nothing. It was the perfect beach.

I will never forget that day, but sadly I have forgotten the name of that area/beach.

This photo reminds me of that same calm, peace and purity.

Ciao
