Mailand River Mouth

The Maitland River Mouth must have one of the nicest unspoilt beaches in the country. This is a view looking toward the coastal suburb of Blue Horizon Bay, taken yesterday evening with oyster catchers feeding in the foreground.
Judging from the signage at the parking lot this is about to change with some planned development. There are some places along our coastline that would be better served by leaving them unspoilt by development - this is one of them.

  1. It looks so serene. I can feel the cool evening air on my skin, the sea breeze on my face, the salty ocean smell, the sand between my toes, the sound of the waves and the birds calling, the sight of the sun setting, the sqeeze of a loved one's hand and all my stresses and tiredness flowing out of me. And its only a couple of kilometres down the road. This picture has lots of feeling.

  7. Oh what a wonderful shot!! The first time I went out to Blue Horizon Bay, probably about 10 years ago, I said that's where I want to live. It's the best kept secret in South Africa.

    The shot reminds me of one of my own, taken at Keurboomstrand in Feb, with the same sort of mistiness and golden light.
