Adelaide Beaches...

There is no way I could blog photos of Adelaide and leave out the beaches. They're squeaky clean ocean beaches, one after the other in the formation of the Great Australia Bite. For my very cold (temperature, not state of their hearts) blogging friends, these snaps will hopefully brighten, possibly even warm your day some.

The first three shots were taken just after the sun set as I followed the yacht, until I got lost in the sunset and the boat sailed on.


*Don't forget to click on the photos*




































It never ceases to amaze me how many different shades of blue and green the sea can be all at the same time. The following photos were taken within a half hour time span and show a beautiful array of color changes in that short period of time.

You have an incredible eye, Eaton. I love how varied your pictures are. I really get a feel for the land that way. I love your sense of color and the play of light. More, please! :)

Byz! You're right the colors of blue and green are so many and bright, and all in a half of an hour? Must have been the lighting or something.
Did you go swimming or just sightsee?

Eaton Bennett said...

Thanks everyone, for your comments. I'm glad you are all enjoying the photos of this amazing land. I am loving taking photos...I think it is like a drug. One photo leads to another and another. And If it wasn't so HOT (100f) I might be out snapping away to my hearts content.

Evey, no swimming just paddling. :)

Great shots! I love the beach. Even looking at photos can give a sense of calm and I can almost smell the salt air. :-)

These beach shots are so gorgeous.

Hey..you know, I asked (on the Island Style blog if anyone had a problem with my header overlapping the columns? I found out that those who open there browser with Mozilla Firefox see it that way (I had to load the template with it then cover the picture it comes w/it with my own. That doesn't happen with internet Ex. (big, but still behind) Well, I shrunk it. When you do decide to come back, let me know if your still seeing it covering the column or post- thanks Eaton.

Greetings from Finland !!! I would so much like to be in Adelaide right now as it is cild and foggy and cloudy here in Scandinavia :( But after 3 months the sun will begin to shine more and the spring is then here :)

getting sick, living in fog 2 last weeks and watching such wonderful, clear, summer world.

Marias Teater said...

It is so difficult to find a blog with photos among many of your blogs. But I think I was lucky to find one where you "say it" with photos. I love to see this wonderful summer in Australia right now, when we have about 5 hours light now days.
