Breaking Waves – A Soothing Sound
On our 2016 South Africa trip we spent some time at Umhlanga, staying in a timeshare block right on the beach. It was great to take an early morning walk, or just sit in the sun on the beach. This is surfing country, so the breakers crash on to the beach and then roll back down the steep slope. The sound is just so soothing. I did get a bit sunburnt – the cost of being soothed by the sound of the waves and going to sleep in the sun.
Wave shots take a bit of effort, mainly waiting for the right moment and the right “look”. It means shooting many photos to catch just the right one. I liked the churned up sand in this shot, and cropped it to concentrate on the sea and remove the horizon.
