Sunday Stills: Shorelines from my travels.


Ed’s Sunday Stills challenge this week, is ‘Shorelines’, and the rules are that the pics mustΒ 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. πŸ™‚

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.

  1. 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.

  2. The aloe and the elephants!! I feel a blog post beginning… or, will it work as a song title? πŸ˜‰

    Whatever… it takes me home… to Africa, to my Eastern Cape…

  3. ogni foto ha un suo particolare fascino ed uno straordinario colpo d’occhio, quale grande amante della musica lirica devo perΓ² 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

  4. 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…

  5. 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 πŸ™‚

    • 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. πŸ™‚

  6. Hi there ! … Fantastic photos ! … My favourite is the lonely palm in Belize and your Aloe Candelabra from your home in South Africa … // Maria πŸ™‚

  7. 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. πŸ™‚
      Yes, I hadn’t thought about it, but the plane window must have been exceptionally clean. Makes a nice change. πŸ™‚

  8. I particularly like the beach scene of Cornwall…. I haven’t been there in a million years but I remember the beauty…

  9. 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. πŸ˜• 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. πŸ˜€

      • 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 sΓ₯ mycket. *ler
