The African Coastline is an area of sheer beauty. Huge diversity in birdlife and landscapes provide an unlimited attraction to any nature lover and photographer. I don't live anywhere near the coast, so my time here is very limited but I feel a great appreciation and desire to return as often as I can in the future.
Hues of Gold
Rainy skies give way to an awesome display of light to the west. The sun sets, engulfing the sky and landscape in hues of gold.
Meisho Maru Wreck
The wreck of the Meisho Maru 38 which ran aground between Suiderstrand and Cape Agulhas on 16 November 1982, captured on a December evening after sunset. A long exposure with the sun below the horizon created ethereal effects of light on the foreground rocks.
During March 2015, a large Tropical Cyclone system moved in from Madagascar towards the Island of Mauritius, creating very dramatic stormy skies over the sublime beaches with heavy downpours and torrential rains engulfing the scene moments after this image was captured.
Long Exposure of the Kwazulu Coast
An exposure of just over a minute streaks the clouds and blurs the water on the rocky coastline near Uvongo on the Kwazulu Natal south coast.
Betty's Bay Sunset
The fading sun shines intense orange light onto low hanging clouds across the beach at the small town of Betty's Bay in the Western Cape.
Rugged Coastline of the Cape
Huge waves crash onto the cliffs near Kogel Bay in the Cape, as the sun slowly reaches the horizon on a summer afternoon.
Low Tide at Brenton-on-Sea
Low tide at Brenton-on-Sea exposes Mussels growing attached to normally submerged rocks, as the first light of dawn illuminates the Earth's atmosphere with pink and orange light.
Morning sunlight kisses streaky clouds above the Cape Peninsula as waves lap up onto the beach at Bloubergstrand. This truly is the iconic image of Table Mountain, captured by many, many photographers.
Dawn on the Mother City
Waves recede into the Atlantic Ocean on the beach at Bloubergstrand as the dawn winter glow illuminates the iconic Table Mountain in soft golden hues.
Kwazulu Natal Moonrise
A full moon rises to the East over the Indian Ocean, captured from the rocky beach on the South Coast at Uvongo. A very humid evening fogged up the filters I was using to capture this image, creating a soft effect on the rising moon. Light from a nearby building helped illuminate the foreground rocks, balancing the exposure across the scene.
An exposure of five minutes streaks the stormy sky and water, creating an ethereal scene enhanced by the sunrise contrasts and colours.
A strong cold front system hits the Western Cape coastline, bringing dramatic clouds and winds engulfing the sky as faint sunset light paints the coastline of Kommetjie in a soft warm glow.
Wreck at Cape Aghulus
Sunset light shines through a tiny gap on the horizon, painting the rocky, wreck scene of Cape Aghulus in golden colours.
Colours Of Sunrise
The sun rises across the Indian Ocean to the East, creating brilliant hues of light spreading across the sky and reflected off the rocky shoreline below.
Towards Table Mountain
Waves crash onto the beach at Bloubergstrand under a brilliant high cloud sunset.
