High Cs to rival Pavarotti


I only saw the high seas that trashed Durban’s North Beachfront from home, and wish I’d taken a trip right away to get a closer look.  Apparently these were a spin-off from another Madagascar cyclone. Even from as far away as our home, the crunches of the really massive breakers were like not-so-distant explosions, and there has been a constant roar as an undercurrent, rather like the rumble a busy nearby motorway gives.

The moon was full that evening, which meant spring tides to add to the effect.  Here it is rising still in daylight:

The above picture was taken from this sports field in the valley near where we had gone to ride bikes:

Later I took another one from home.  Something magic about the moon over sea.

Today I went to look for any breach upon our beach. Other than lots of sand where sand shouldn’t be, none featured I could see.

Waves were still waving enthusiastically, though.

  2. Yes, there is something quite magical about the sun, and the moon, rising from the ocean; it’s something I do miss, since moving from the Northern Beaches.

  3. I love the roar of the ocean when it’s angry – great shots.
