Another one from our visit to the southern most tip of Africa a few weeks ago.
I really appreciate everyone's votes and comments on yesterday's Blushing Bride image - much appreciated - and also to Jukka for his mod Smile
Have a fabulous Friday!

The furthest Southern tip I generally get to is Cape May, the Southern tip of New Jersey. A bit less dramatic than the tip of an entire continent,with nothing but the Southern Ocean between you and Antarctica. And, such a beautiful tip it seems to be, Herman. It is somewhat visually reminiscent of the Maine Coast.

It has to be the southern hemisphere.......



Quote: I must go down to the seas again, to the lonely sea and the sky,
And all I ask is a tall ship and a star to steer her by,
And the wheel's kick and the wind's song and the white sail's shaking,
And a grey mist on the sea's face, and a grey dawn breaking.

I must go down to the seas again, for the call of the running tide
Is a wild call and a clear call that may not be denied;
And all I ask is a windy day with the white clouds flying,
And the flung spray and the blown spume, and the sea-gulls crying.

I must go down to the seas again, to the vagrant gypsy life,
To the gull's way and the whale's way, where the wind's like a whetted knife;
And all I ask is a merry yarn from a laughing fellow-rover,
And quiet sleep and a sweet dream when the long trick's over.


John Masefield

A very fine seascape really , excitinng colours in the stones , are they of volcanic origin? GrinGrinGrinSmile ---- When Colleen wrote that there is cold and foggy, so here is very very warm, in the northern Finland ,Lapland + 29c,but in the most northern lake "Inarinjärvi" there is still 30 cm icecover! Unbeliavable indeed!!! The weatherpeople say that it is the first time ever! ---- Have a fabulous weekend! ---- Jukka. GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Not 'LandsEnd' then which is the most southern part for us; unless you count Jersey, which although not attached is often claimed to the be warmest place in the UK. Unfortunately, although it is part of Great Britain, it is not classed as part of the UK; hence the reason there are restrictions on the Duty Free. [Evidence of my mis-spent employment with the Government, thought {hoped} I'd forgotten it all].

This image makes me want to dip my toes in that ocean [is it an ocean or is it a sea?] it really is an evocative scene. The scientists argue that we originated from the sea, is this why we tend to gravitate towards it and always find it a beautiful place.
