Ed’s Sunday Stills challenge this week, is ‘Shorelines’, and the rules are that the pics must have the sea, ocean, lake or pond and land. Quite simple really, and of course there is always my blog header, which is the shoreline of the idyllic island of Bora Bora in French Polynesia. 🙂
Here are a few more shorelines that I’ve enjoyed on my travels. I’ve tried to include something interesting on each shoreline. You can click on the photos to get the bigger picture.
I hope you’ve enjoyed my take on Ed’s theme. To see more entries, just click here.
blimey there is a few destinations I fancy in amongst that lot
Glad you approve, Scott. I wouldn’t mind going back to a couple of these myself. 🙂
Oh my Gosh …. the elephant by the shore line are incredible.
These are all special treasures. Thank you for sharing them with us.
Thanks, Issy. I’m so glad you enjoyed these. Those elephants were amazing to see. 🙂
I loved them ALL! The first one made me say ” Oh my goodness” out loud…..such beautiful places…
Thanks so much, Suzanne. Yes, those elephants are such gorgeous creatures. 🙂
Love them all! My favorite is the one from Belize as I can see myself relaxing right there 🙂
Thanks, Inga. Yes, Belize was a very relaxing place. 🙂

Thanks so much, Lola. 🙂
Awesome photos! I enjoyed them very much, thank you 🙂

Lake Kariba brought back good memories, used to go there often when I lived in Zimbabwe, but that was 35 years ago. Thanks for the beautiful photos, loved all of them.
You’re so welcome, Linda. Glad my Lake Kariba brought back fond memories. We were there 9 years ago.
I’m a sucker for shorelines. Seldom a disappointing view and these stunning photos must bring back some wonderful memories.for you.
Thanks so much, Lynne. Yes, they do bring back wonderful memories. 🙂
Lovely shots! I think I must dig out my passport again.
Thanks so much, Mostraum. Great idea. 🙂

Yes, I know I’m very blessed, LuAnn. 🙂
You are certainly well traveled!! I loved all of your beautiful shoreline shots, all terrific captures. 🙂
Thanks so much, Di. 🙂
Awesome shots! Loved the Cornwall, pelicans, and aloe ones but my favorite is the windswept shoreline of San Pedro..so beautiful.
Thanks so much, Deepali. I could go back to San Pedro in a heartbeat. 🙂
Gorgeous, gorgeous shorelines. 🙂
Thanks so much. Glad you enjoyed these. 🙂
The aloe and the elephants!! I feel a blog post beginning… or, will it work as a song title? 😉
Whatever… it takes me home… to Africa, to my Eastern Cape…
A song title would definitely work. 🙂
My but you’ve seen some beautiful shores! This was a wonderful response to the challenge.
Thanks, John. Glad you liked these. 🙂
Beautiful photo’s AD! Although I must say the famed ‘lorelei’ looks a lot like a big baboon looking down as us!
Hahaha….Yes, and when one is down underneath it in a boat, it looks even bigger. 🙂
Wspaniałe zdjęcia i wpis. Pozdrowienia
Dziękuję bardzo za odwiedziny. 🙂
What a nice challenge! All that blue Sylvia and then you got to Europe!
Thanks, Gilly. I love the blue the best. 🙂
Once again a beautiful spread from across the world… love your photos and the places you’ve been
Thanks, bulldog. 🙂
ogni foto ha un suo particolare fascino ed uno straordinario colpo d’occhio, quale grande amante della musica lirica devo però sottolineare la roccia della malefica Lorelay che mi fa girare nella testa la grande musica di Wagner, grazie amica giramondo, ti invidio tantissimo per questo
each photo has its own special charm and a unique glance, what great lyrical music lover but I underline the evil rock Lorelay makes me shoot in the head the great music of Wagner, thanks friend giramondo, I envy you so much for this
Thanks so much for making me smile as always. 🙂
Interesting! Every shoreline has its own uniqueness. Great captures, Sylvia!
Thanks so much, Chris. 🙂
wonderful shore lines…all are beautiful in their own way, the Aloe candelabra is very interesting, I’ve never seen that before…I didn’t know the Aloe plant grew flowers. I always have one in the house for their medicinal aspect…
Thanks, Heather. Glad I could show you the Aloe flower. 🙂
Getting a bit chilly around here. I’d rather be in any one of those places…
You could come to Florida. It’s really warm here. 🙂
Oh – if I had wings & could fly – LOL
You have reminded of that song, ‘Oh for the wings of a dove’. 🙂
A truly beautiful collection of shorelines….and my favorite has to be the Atlantic from England’s shores…. Home and it’s familiarity somehow always trump the novelty of the the new for me 🙂
Thanks so much, Seonaid. I’ve recently been watching the ‘Coast’ series on TV, and it’s made me realise how much there is to explore along Britain’s shoreline. Marvellous programme. 🙂
Just gorgeous! Love the elephants.
Thanks so much, Amy. 🙂
Love the aloe candelabra, Ad 🙂
Thanks, Jo. They are beautiful, but for such a short time.
Hi there ! … Fantastic photos ! … My favourite is the lonely palm in Belize and your Aloe Candelabra from your home in South Africa … // Maria 🙂
My mother was named after the Lorelei rock, I still a old newspaper clipping with a little story about it, kept by my grandfather as an inspiration for naming his daughter … but I love your candelabra aloe plant too …. all great photos ad, and you certainly had nice clear windows on your flight home!
How interesting that your mom was named after the Lorelei, Christine. 🙂
Yes, I hadn’t thought about it, but the plane window must have been exceptionally clean. Makes a nice change. 🙂
I keep saying it, but you have been to some beautiful places.
I can’t deny it, Tilly. 🙂
Totally in love with them!!!
Thanks so much, Pablo. 🙂
Such lovely pictures. Especially the elephants and pelicans 🙂
Thanks, Sarah. Glad you enjoyed them. 🙂
Thanks so much, Nicole. 🙂
I particularly like the beach scene of Cornwall…. I haven’t been there in a million years but I remember the beauty…
Yes, I really fell in love with Cornwall. It takes some beating. 🙂
Beautiful shore line scenery!
Thanks so much. 🙂
wild elephants – assets of forest
Thank you. 🙂
Lovely shots AD. Glad to be home?
Thanks, granny. Well it depends where you call home. We are in Florida at the moment. 🙂
Oh ok…where DO you call home?
Wherever my hair dryer is. 🙂
You have some fantastic shots in your portfolio. I love that lonely palm tree. Great shot. Bora-Bora … the closest to paradise we can come *smile
Is the canals in Holland really shorelines ??? I don’t mean to be cheeky .. only wonder – because I thought is was only shoreline when there is an ocean, but I’m Swedish and I don’t have clue how to use all English words .. that is why I ask .. have massive problems with of and off !!!! Sure you have notice. Love your entry even if been off shore.
Thanks so much, Viveka. Well, Ed did specify “ocean, lake or pond”, so I guess that would also include a canal or a river. 😕 Rules are made to be broken, aren’t they? I think that if you remember that “off” is the opposite of “on,” you shouldn’t have a problem. Your English is really excellent, and a trillion times better than my Swedish. 😀
Okay … I’m didn’t want to pick on you … just wondered.
Not any wiser by your answer neither, but I can live that. Totally agree .. rules are to be broken, but you haven’t broken any rules.
You are the first one – that has explained off and of in a way I understand. Thank you so much.
Or as we say in Swedish – tack så mycket. *ler
Du är välkommen. 🙂
*smile … now you was quick and clever.
Such gorgeous pics AD!
Thanks, 68. Have a great weekend. 🙂
Beautiful photos! must of been an incredible experience being so close to the elephants 🙂
Thanks so much, Andy. Yes it was, and we all got to go on an Elephant Safari. Riding an elephant is quite an experience. 🙂
I bet! beautiful gentle giants 🙂
