Good day.....
Thank you for your continued support, apologies if I am only voting and not commenting on your images....time is always short on holiday and with a 10 and a half hour difference to the UK it makes it even harder. Thank you to Kathrynlouise and HarrietH for their UA's for my panda, much appreciated.

Today's images are from Glenelg on St Vincent's gulf about a 20 minute drive from Adelaide. My first capture with my new lens....I am out of my comfort zone here... It was 2.30pm in the afternoon so not an ideal time for beach photography, but beggars cannot be choosers. I was surprised at how empty the beach was for a nice summers day. They also have a lovely boat marina there with a good selection of restaurants.
It is 29 deg and sunny here today. GrinGrinGrinGrinGrin

Glad to see your beach images now Colleen - love V1,4, 6, and 10
simply because I just can't get away from the bronzed bodies and lovely sands and
turquiose sea. Great set overall with your new wide angled lens.

I thought Oz was all beach, Colleen.
You seem to have got the hang of your new lens pretty quickly!
Todays uploads are like one of those multi view postcards that unfold - good work.

Lovely. Reminds me of my youth. I can remember the sand, quite coarse and hard to brush off, where I used to go. Also the terrible "scrub" that we had to get through to get to the sand, it was full of prickles and was all along the coast as a kind of natural barrier in the part of Victoria where we used to spend holidays.
The water was warm too which for me is "essential". Great shots showing lovely "Christmas" weather......

I don't envy you at all, Colleen, having to suffer these conditions. I like the minus 6c and snow covering my garden as I look out the window and am glad not to have to lie on a beach in the sun....
Jealous? Moi?Sad

I'll still give you a vote though...
