Greetings and welcome to my gallery Millotaurus.

This beautiful village is one of my favourite places on earth. It is so close to the stormy and often violent North Sea. Waves like this occur many times during the year.

I'm glad you called in. Thanks for taking the time to look.

Wonderful picture! I can't imagine where you were standing when you took this! I will have to mosey down there and take a look!

Greetings and a big welcome Paula. It is reasonably possible to determine with some accuracy the very location from where the photo was taken. Remember how you placed your own viewpoint ?? . With each photo there is a viewpoint map, simply zoom in to find the viewpoint.

When telephoto lenses are used, as in my case, it gives the illusion of being much closer to the action.

Thanks for dropping in Paula.

Cheers-- Jim

Ah! Much clearer now Jim! I haven't actually walked much further than the little cafe there. I will make a point of exploring a little further on my next visit at the end of May. Paula

The groynes are under attack. Great lively photo.

Jim Evans (AXOTA) on December 27, 2008

Thanks for your comment Amelia, the groynes are on their last legs. It is only a matter of time when this village really will be the "SANDSEND".

Its a great pity that municipal neglect will reduce this white,sandy beach to dark slate grey fossilised alluvial mud, in the not so distant future.

Cheers------------Jim

Hello Jim, authorities to my knowledge often act after the stable has been opened. What a pity that this view will change. I hope it's not too imminent.

Greetings, Amelia

Hello Again Jim. Wowwwwwwwwwwww what a site to see. This is really spectacular to see. I read above that later, with the incoming tide and the rough sea it was 5 meters!!! That must have been some site. I love looking at rough seas. Every now and again down in Albany, there will be at least one big storm in 18 months or so where the seas are huge. I have been to one of the local beaches called Middleton Beach, where the brakers (waves) were braking way out about a 1 klm off shore. Really big seas and waves and also what these big storms also do, is, they wash up such a delightful variety of shell and big ones as well. I have found some time, back, that there are laws about picking shells on the beach after a storm, where its illegal to do so, here in Western Australia . So after this big storm, did you find anything interesting that got washed up Jim. Years ago, back in the late 1980's and early 1990's I used to live right at beach. Infact the boundry of the property, was the high water mark, a very old location. Anyway most morning we would go down to the beach around daylight and walk or run olong the beach. It was really amasing what we would find washed up on the beach each day. Yes, there would be heaps of woods, light bulbs off ships I guess. always one thong. I used to collect them all up and wear odd ones!!! And one day, I found this huge wheel, tire on a rim, and its still had air in it.Look like it had come off a large army truck or some 4WD. It must have been in the water a long time, as it was heavierly covered in barnacles. Some how we rolled this wheel back up the beach and brought it home. It was really heavy as well and nearly gave up and left it behind. It was nice living this place. Sorry for getting carried away with one of my *stories again!!! :-) Kindest Regards, From, David
