More Sun From From Sandsend

Selected for Google Maps and Google Earth

Another early morning panoramic from the beach at Sandsend..It is one of my favourite locations..The golden sands of this gorgeous beach stretch for several kilometres and is swept clean by the tides twice per day.

Surfers, fishermen, kite-surfers and swimmers can be seen along here all year round. On sunny days, the beach is a popular venue for locals and tourists alike!

Sea-bathing can only be described as "exhilerating" since the temperature of the North sea rarely exceeds 15C, even in the height of summer!

The groynes are in a poor state of repair and do little to discourage the huge shift in the deposition of sand..If the loss of sand from the beach continues at its present rate, then the village will surely live up to its name!

Gabor Retei~~~~The big DSLR's are great for bracketing Gabe since the menus are much more accessible than the Nikon E8700..However, I still rate that little cameras lens as one of the best..Thanks for the kind evaluation!

Hello my dear Jim, many thanks for your beautiful comment on my ''wind effect'' shot. Yes, the Camargue is an unique place, and this day the wind was so powerful it was hard to walk and keep eyes open!
Excellent shot of this lovely place, superb composition, fabulous light, and the blue tones give a magical mood! I am not stunned that is was a famous spot for tourists, it looks really ravishing and typical, big like 55 ♥ and YS 21 ♥ for this beautiful photo! Have a very happy Sunday, Geneviève
